We will be running with the same format and will have range of A,B and C walks which are explained below. As well as our regular walks we will have a few quirky twists added in. The hikes are broke down into the following grades:

A walks:

These tours are similar to blue but involve greater distances and/or more hills. These trips are for keen outdoor enthusiasts with a good level of fitness. Suitable for most people with a keen attitude and adventurous nature.

B Walks:

These tours demand a better standard of fitness and ability, usually gained through regular exercise. There will be hills and clients will be active for at least 3-4 hours.

C Walks:

These require some basic fitness and the ability to cycle or walk for 2-3 hours on flat or easy rolling terrain.
