Physical Fitness

Although some parts of the itineraries can be fairly easy there is also a fair amount of trekking on hilly and rocky terrain and therefore a reasonable level of fitness is required. It is advisable to do some walking over hilly terrain before starting your holiday. The altitude also varies from 300 to 2,000 metres a.s.l.

It is the client’s total responsibility to ensure that they are fit to walk.

If a client has a particular medical problem please ensure that they carry the necessary medication with them.

Hiking or walking boots are necessary with good ankle support and it is strongly advised that these boots have been well tried and tested before the walk. Gym shoes are not appropriate. Proper trekking socks would also make your feet more comfortable.

  • Walking sticks would also be useful on some of the walks.
  • A waterproof jacket and trousers are also advised for walking in the rain!
  • A backpack is needed for carrying water, a picnic, waterproofs and camera etc.
  • A hat, sun protection cream, and insect repellent are also advised.
  • A swimming costume or bikini is necessary for walks including a spa.
