What to expect:

Grading - Hard

Just a note of caution some of the trails contain difficult sections, however our experienced guides will always be there to assist you. Participants should expect around 6-8 hours walking each day and the treks will vary in conditions. There will be soft sand, uneven rocks, steps, and possibly some small sections of scrambling. The distances will vary between 9km up to 22km and agility will be important and as with any of our tours the fitter you are for the activity, the more your attention moves from looking at your feet to experiencing your surrounds. Train for uneven terrain by finding rough tracks, even just your local park or sports field, and go for a lovely long walk in your both your best and back-up footwear.
