This is aimed at people who have a moderate level of fitness. Someone who goes to the gym one or two times a week or otherwise keeps fit. The day is at a relaxed pace but with some steep climbs and descents.
Due to the nature of the terrain, we will be walking on steep and rugged ground at times. The pace is largely set by the group. If are not unsure if this is right for you then please do contact us.
