Who is it suitable for? What do I need?
Don’t worry you don’t need to be super fit as we always go at a gentle but steady pace. However, it does help if you have a good level of general fitness to let you enjoy the walk and the mountain scenery.
This walk is open to individuals and groups of all abilities and ages but we do ask that if you are under 18 that a parent or legal guardian accompanies you.
What kit do I need?
You will need to have correct footwear and clothing for walking on rough tracks in a mountain environment. We would recommend sturdy walking shoes (not trainers or street footwear) or suitable walking boots. In the summer months, lightweight walking boots/shoes are ideal – whether they are made from leather or synthetic with leather is up to you.
A small day sack is handy for your food and drink for the day, up to 25Lt in size is ideal.
Even in the summer mountain weather can be very fickle so it’s best to have enough clothing and waterproofs for every eventuality. We can always give you advice about things you may be thinking of buying if you are coming in to the mountains with us.
