School Expeditions and Adventures
Each of our School Group Adventures is given a grade, taking into account the amount of walking involved, the difficulty of the terrain, the remoteness, the altitude and the overall length of the trip.
Suitable for most people in good health, holidays at this grade include only limited amounts of activity. Any elements of walking are predominantly on good paths.
Suitable for reasonably fit individuals, such as weekend walkers, holidays at this grade generally include relatively short walking days at moderate altitude, on good paths and tracks. There can be the occasional more difficult day.
Physically challenging holidays, where you need to be prepared before you go. Holidays at this grade are suitable for regular hill walkers who are used to extended days and can involve difficult and sometimes glaciated terrain, as well as lengthy periods at high altitude.
Our toughest holidays, involving many long days, often in isolated areas and at extreme altitude. May also include difficult pass crossings, requiring basic mountaineering skills and equipment. A high level of fitness and previous wilderness and mountain experience is essential.
