How our walks are graded

Grade 2/Easy or easy to moderate:

Modest gradients with cumulative ascent up to a maximum of 500m in a day. Terrain overall would tend to be less challenging than grade 3. Up to 5 hours walking, excluding breaks. Walking mainly on paths though paths can be quite rough and stony, especially in limestone regions.

Grade 3/Moderate

Generally longer walks than grade 2 with more consistent ascent, up to 1000m per day and up to 6 hours walking. Be prepared for some steeper ascents and descents. Walking both on and off path, and occasionally scrambling

Guests on any of our walking holidays do need to be healthy and are likely to be semi-regular walkers, or be reasonably fit from other activities. We absolutely do not do ‘route marches’ and there is always time to enjoy the scenery, flora and fauna.
Daily walking distances can be anything from 8 to 18 kms depending on ascent, terrain and weather conditions – information specific to each destination on request or on making an enquiry.
