Challenge & Achievement:
It’s your own Everest!
As we often say, walking is the best way of discovering a country’s landscapes and culture. To ensure that you get the most from one of our itineraries around Europe, we recommend that you have a look at our Walking Grades. These Walking Grades have been developed by our own team of specialists and are calculated by considering the length, gradient, distance and technicality of the route involved. Indulge your spirit of adventure, in your dream destination, without compromising your safety and comfort. Take a look at how we categorise our walking grades and then assess your own capabilities and preparation regime accordingly. Be realistic; this will help you get the most out of your time on the trip!
