Our holiday walking grades


Grade 6

Full day walks with appreciable amounts of ascent and descent.

These walks are in more remote areas such as Andorra or northern Portugal.

Similar to Grade 5, but with most of the walks at the upper level of ascent/descent, time and distance.


Grade 7

Stamina is the key to these holidays, which will typically be in the Alps or the Dolomites.

There is plenty of ascent and descent over rough and steep ground, so a steady foot and a good head for heights is advisable.

Expect about 800 - 1000m of cumulative ascent and descent each day.
