Walking Tours FAQ
Are your walking tours suitable for me?
All of our walking tours are physically challenging, and involve some steep ascents, descents, uneven ground, steps, slopes, stiles, and can also involve warm, cold and wet weather. You’ll get the most out of the trip if you’re fit and have some experience walking in the outdoors. We’re happy to advise you as to the best option for you - just ask!
What do I need to wear and bring?
- Fully waterproof jacket, and overtrousers
- Walking boots with ankle support and good grip (preferably worn in prior to the trip to avoid blisters)
- A warm layer and spare warm layer
- Day bag with waterproof liner or dry bag
- Hat, and gloves
- Sun protection (hat, glasses & sunscreen)
- 2 litres of water per day
- Some snacks and packed lunch
- Walking poles
- Change of clothes for after the walk
Please note that if you turn up without suitable clothing and not fully equipped, for safety & insurance reasons we won’t be able to take you on the walk.
We do have a limited amount of spare waterproofs, walking poles and boots which you are welcome to borrow if you confirm with us in advance.
I have a medical condition - can I still join the tour?
Yes we are more than happy to take you along provided that you have sought professional medical advice from your doctor. You will need to fill out a medical form and consent form prior to the trip to declare your fitness to participate. Please also ensure you bring along any medication you may need, and inform your guide.
Am I in safe hands with you?
As with any outdoor activity, there are risks involved. We take safety very seriously and take every step possible to minimise the risks. Occasionally we may have to re-route, reschedule or cancel a trip for safety purposes. Guides hold the relevant walking leader qualification through Mountain Training, and are fully equipped and trained in Remote Emergency First Aid.
