Our holiday walking grades


Grade 6 Sightseeing

Full day walks with appreciable amounts of ascent and descent. These walks are in more remote areas but with walking similar to Grade 5, but with most of the walks at the upper level of ascent/descent, time and distance. Some days of this holiday will be dedicated solely to sightseeing (or include an element of sightseeing). To enhance your experience, a knowledgeable local guide will accompany your small group for part (or the majority) of the holiday.
