Walking holidays

How fit do I need to be?
Our walking trips are graded as Easy, Moderate, or Difficult, with a difficulty rating of 1 to 10. Where Easy is levels 1 to 4; Level 1, picture walking a mile or two on a flat road (we don’t do level 1 and 2!) and Level 4 is up to 6 hours walking per day, on-road and off road, with few strenuous sections. Moderate is levels 4 to 6; Level 6 has as many strenuous sections as it doesn’t. Difficult is levels 7 to 10; Level 8 is up to 10 hours per day, with plenty of strenuous hiking at a good pace (we don’t do levels 9 and 10).

Do I have to walk every day?
This is your holiday and you can take a day off from walking if you really want to, but one of the great things about these holidays is the sense of community that you build with your group, and your tour leader won’t take you out if it’s not safe or if there are any problems.

What if I can't keep up?
If you’ve booked the correct level, your tour leaders have been specially trained to make sure that the group walks at the pace of the slowest person, which means that nobody gets left behind and nobody has to feel like they’re holding the group back.

What special kit do I need?
You really must have walking boots, trainers or other kinds of shoes aren’t good enough. Waterproof boots are best, and please make sure that they’re broken in too.
Waterproofs are essential as the weather can change pretty quickly.
Some people like to bring walking poles, but they’re not essential.
Apart from that, just some warm weather gear and cold weather gear.
