Join Ibex

Ibex is a great way to meet active people in London who share your enthusiasm for hiking and mountaineering.

It's a good idea to try out the club before you join. Prospective members can attend a weekend event without first paying for membership.

Join online now or read on for more information.

Who joins Ibex?

Ibex consists of hill walkers and mountaineers of all ages, social backgrounds and experience. Our weekends away offer access to challenging high level walks and scrambling.

For less experienced walkers, learn new skills such as navigation and gain confidence with help from our experienced members. If you want to progress on to more challenging expeditions, then we have many members who can help you onwards and upwards.

Join us on walks and scrambles in Scotland, the Lakes and Snowdonia.

Try the club

Come along on an Ibex event and find out more about the club:

  • Weekends away - anyone interested in joining Ibex can attend one weekend trip without paying for membership first.
  • Club nights - every month and usually include a presentation/photos, followed by drinks and plenty of gossip and trip planning! From 7:00pm.
  • Day walks - we organise occasional day walks in the London area. Note: day walks are generally not indicative of the distance/terrain of weekend hikes.


Ibex membership is currently £22 (discounted if you join after 1 July) and expires on 31 December each year.

New members who join in December, get membership for the whole of the following year.

You may join online and pay your membership fee online using PayPal or post an application form and cheque.

Members get a monthly newsletter by email - containing the latest club news, events open for booking and write-ups of past weekends and other activities!

If you have any other questions please contact us. We hope to see you at an event in the future.
