  • We grade our tours on level of activity and amount of walking involved, which can be found on the tour pages on the website and in our brochures, under ‘Physical Rating’. We grade the tours as follows:

    • Level 1 – A reasonable level of fitness is required, but its more about spending time on your feet rather than covering large distances.
    • Level 2 – This will involve a little more time on your feet than level 1 tours and may involve a bit more walking or steps.
    • Level 3 – A good level of fitness is required, as around 2-3 hours of walking will be required per day. Other activities such as cycling, may be included and walking longer distances.
    • Level 4 – Level 4 is similar to level 3 but the activities may be of longer duration or a more challenging terrain.
    • Level 5 – You’ll need to be fit and adventurous to participate in these tours as in some cases you will be active for most of the day on tough terrain or have physically demanding activities.
