If you are planning a Hiking (up to 3,000 metres) holiday, make sure that you have a Travel Insurance policy in place before you leave your home.

Hiking is different from Trekking as it usually does not include High Altitudes and is in most cases on paths that have been used before.

If you are Hiking above 3,000 metres, we can still provide cover Hiking (up to 6,000 metres). You can get a quote through our Adventures policy.

Common Injuries whilst Hiking

Hiking at high altitudes is not advisable if you suffer from a Heart Condition or High Blood Pressure, as the increased altitude puts added pressure on your heart, causing it to work harder and increase blood pressure.

This can be too much of a strain if you already suffer from a Heart Condition.

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions

If you have pre-existing medical conditions and you plan to go Hiking (up to 3,000 metres) whilst travelling abroad, we can provide you with a policy.

On the quote page, you need to select Hazardous Activity Pack B.
