Hiking

There can be few sports as cheap and easy as walking, which at the same time, offer so much to the participant. It is said that walking fills the soul in a way that no other sport does, offering the opportunity to explore the countryside, breath pure air and feel great!

Hiking or mountain walking can incorporate a low level wander or a full day on a mountain. A guide will ensure that the route chosen is sympathetic to the fitness and ability of the group, and can add another dimension to your experience with local information and help you to experience the best an area has to offer.

Little equipment is needed for lower level walks, although in the UK wet weather gear is usually an essential!

Pros

  • Fresh air and great views
  • Freedom
  • Little equipment needed

Cons

  • Sore feet

Training & Qualifications

Guided walks are a great way to explore the best of an area. Explore coastal paths, rivers and canals, public footpaths and hills provide a wide range of options for hikers of all abilities.

Gear

Sturdy walking boots, appropriate clothing, a map, compass, rucksack and water bottle.
