2018 Trekking Calendar

Below is our current calendar for 2018. Please note that this is not our full list of trips for the year and more will be added soon. If you don't see a trip on a week you have free then do contact us and we will do our best to arrange something for you.

All our treks are given a difficulty rating from 1 to 5;
1 is the easiest of our walks and can be enjoyed by everyone, it will be low level on good paths.
2 is also low level and on good paths, however, the days will be slightly longer and more tiring than a 1.
3 is a good, challenging trek for the average person. It will be an undulating trek with some challenging days, but nothing that cannot be achieved by the average person.
4 is a more challenging trek, this is usually due to longer days, lots of hills or pathless sections over rough ground.
5 is our most challenging trek, and only recommended for the experienced and fit walker.
