This walk is graded HIGH INTERMEDIATE
All our walks are Graded so it makes it easier for you to understand the intensity and level of walking we’ll be doing. Below is a description of each:
For beginners or those that enjoy lower level and shorter walks, an average of 3-4 hours walking per day with plenty of breaks.
These walks are suitable for anyone who has done some walking in the past, or does some form of weekly exercise. Some steeper gradients may be involved but there will be plenty of opportunities to stop for a break. Average of 4 – 6 hours walking per day.
Longer walks/treks with some steep gradients and possibly some scrambling, sometimes at higher altitudes, or for more than one day (trekking in Europe or Africa). An average of 6 – 8 hour walking, no technical skill required but a good level of fitness is required.
This is a guideline only, if you are unsure whether you could complete a walk with us or would just like to clarify some information, please feel free to contact us by telephone or email.
