Trek Grading

We want you to enjoy your adventure, so we have graded our treks according to their degree of difficulty. This is not an exacting science, so please contact us for further information to find out if the trek is right for you. All our hikes are in remote locations that can be difficult to access assistance in the event of an emergency. It is vital to register for a trek appropriate to your or your family members age and level of fitness.

ALL AGES

These treks are great for ages 8 and above.

You will be hiking on uneven terrain with some hills and steps for between 4 - 6 hours per day carrying a daypack.

We are often in remote and inaccessible locations, therefore it is crucial to ensure you have informed us of any health concerns prior to registration.

Prior experience is not necessary, although it is good to know if you like this kind of thing!
