How our walking holidays are graded:-
Grade 1 sightseeing :-
Gentle exploration of the region , with some short walks of up to 2 hours duration, visiting local heritage sites and villages.
Grade 2 :-
Walking mainly on paths. Modest gradients with ascents up to 500m in a day. Up to 5 hours walking per day. Being a limestone region our paths can be quite rough and stony.
Walking both on and off path, and occasionally scrambling. Be prepared for steep ascents and descents. Ascents up to 1000m per day and up to 6 hours walking.
As grade 3 with a couple of longer days and some scrambling: Steep ascents and descents up to 1500m per day and up to 7 hours walking.
Walking boots are essential on all grades of holidays to this region because of the rough stony nature of the paths.
