Our aim is to enable you to choose the holiday that is right for you so we
hope that you find the following information useful.
Exploring the outdoors is all part of the Journeying holiday experience.
On most holidays this will include walking (hiking/tramping) each day.
The walk pace is always relaxed with plenty of time to look at the view and
soak up the atmosphere. We aim to make clear below how we grade our
Do please take these into account when booking.
Journeying uses two parameters when describing the overall level of difficulty
of walks on a particular holiday: Length and Terrain. Within each parameter
there are three grades.
Short maximum 3 miles
Medium maximum 7 miles
Long usually no more than 10 miles
Easy fairly flat and mainly on defined paths
Moderate some rocky or steep sections
Challenging some big hills (maximum ascent usually no more than
2000 feet/610 meters), rocky sections and off-path sections
that could be difficult underfoot.
Challenging plus: a mountain top will be included.
We describe both the maximum level of difficulty of walks on the holiday
(this will appear on the summary page of the holiday section) and the
maximum level of difficulty for each individual walk; this information appears
with each holiday details.
Walks are shown as e.g. Medium/Moderate indicating medium length and
moderate terrain (see above).
Do contact the holiday leader if you would like further advice.
