You will need to be of average walking fitness. There is plenty of time to complete each day’s walk, so with plenty of breaks and slow walking most people will comfortably manage the walks. We offer various options of length and gradient so you can choose the right option for you. Our longest and steepest walk options offer a higher level of difficulty for our walkers looking for more of a challenge.

You won’t be sharing a room with anyone outside of your booking group.
Yes, of course. Either pick a date which already has bookings or take your chances that someone else will book that same date to bring numbers up to four. If no one has booked three weeks prior to your arrival date, we will phone you to discuss options. They will most likely be to change your date or organise alternative shuttle options or a full refund (minus transaction fees).
