Trip Sign-ups

To sign up for trips, you first need to be a member of the Club. If you are not already a member, click here for more information on joining.

To sign up for a given trip:

  1. Click here to visit the Hiking Club events page on the LUSU website.
  2. Here, you'll see a list of upcoming events. Clicking on a given event will show its availability.
  3. Follow the steps to book yourself a ticket through LUSU's system and use a credit or debit card to pay.

If a particular trip is sold out, message us on our Facebook page (we reply here the quickest), or email hiking@lancaster.ac.uk and we'll add you to the first come, first served reserve list for that trip. Then, we'll let you know if and when a space becomes free.

We no longer accept cash payment for trips, so if you're totally unable to pay online for whatever reason, contact us via Facebook or email using the above details.

If you are signed up for a trip and can no longer come, you must let us know ASAP! This is so we can comply with mandatory LUSU safety policies, and give you a refund should we find someone to take your place. We only give refunds for trips if and when we find someone to take your place, so please be certain you can to make it upon signing up.

NB: your place on a trip is reserved for the remainder of your browser session as soon as you pass the step of selecting your ticket. There's no need to rush entering your card details or filling out the questionnaire on the following pages!

Keeping track of events

The best way to find out which trips, socials and other events we have coming up is to view our calendar.

We try to make hikes available for booking by 1pm on the Tuesday 2 weeks before each hike (i.e. 12 days before a Sunday hike). However, due to constraints and dependancies on LUSU, we often aren't able to confirm minibus bookings until later in the week, so if tickets aren't yet available just keep an eye out, they'll be there soon.

We also post about on our events on our Facebook page, so be sure to Like us and keep track on there.
