    Before booking a tour, it is very important that you objectively assess your physical fitness. Such as,  how far are you able to walk and how much can you deal with. If you book a tour that’s beyond your capabilities you could find yourself out of your comfort zone and may even take unnecessary risks.

    Our trips are neither dangerous nor hazardous, but they are for fit and healthy people who regularly exercise throughout the year. Don’t expect to come on tour to get fit. The following information will help you to select the trip that best suits your level of fitness.

    It is also important to remember that you will possibly be travelling with other people (known to you or not) for a relatively long time and, therefore, you should be patient and work together with them.
