Technical advice

Walking and trekking
Level of experience required and difficulty. Our walks, in general, are suitable for anyone in good health. In some cases a certain experience of walking and a good level of fitness are required. For each walk and each tour which includes trekking in the mountains we indicate the level and the difficulties so that you can choose the trip which best corresponds to your experience and fitness.

Levels - the "level" indicates when it is preferable or necessary to have physical fitness for walking and previous experience of trekking in the mountains.
Level 1 - for everyone
Level 2 - keen walkers (people who are well prepared and used to walking)
Level 3 - hikers (as level 2 with experience of mountain paths which may be exposed in places)
Level 4 - expert hikers (hikers used to long walks, exposed paths and sections equipped with cables/ladders)

Difficulty - For each trip we describe the obstacles which walkers will encounter. The difficulty can be due to the gain in height, the length of the walk or the need to cross exposed or equipped sections. Remember that our guides will ensure your safety and accompany you step by step on each walk.

Here are some examples of the possible "difficulties" which may be flagged:
Difficulty: - none (walk on forest tracks and well signed paths)
                 - walk with ascent and descent (some/many steep sections)
                 - walk with considerable gain/loss in height
                 - physically demanding (x hours of walking)
                 - high altitude walk with exposed sections
                 - walk including sections equipped with cables or ladders on rock faces
                 - walk in winter conditions (requires/does not require snowshoes or crampons)
                 - walk on glacier requiring the use of rope and harness (usually provided)

Equipment for walking
Clothing depends above all on the season, but it is also important to consider the climate higher in the mountains and possible changes in the weather conditions. For each trip we indicate the equipment you should bring, choosing one of three options: minimum equipment, light equipment and full equipment.

Minimum equipment
: The minimum necessary or useful for a stroll or a short walk: a jersey or light windproof jacket, comfortable shoes (trainers or walking shoes), hat and sunglasses.
Light equipment: Hiking shoes, light windproof jacket (preferably waterproof), fleece or light sweater, small rucksack with flask or water bottle, hat, sunglasses and sun cream. Advisable: extendable walking poles.
Full equipment: Hiking shoes or boots, waterproof jacket (Gore-Tex or similar), fleece or light sweater (layering system), hat and gloves, rucksack, thermos flask, extendable walking poles, sunglasses and sun cream. Advisable: hiking trousers, change of underclothes, rain cape.

Cycling trips
Level of experience required and difficulty
Our cycling trips are suitable for anyone in good health. The routes are always on cycle tracks or on roads for short sections where cycle tracks are unavailable. Some routes are more challenging due to the length or the height gained but all tours can be classified as cycle tourism.

There are two levels:
Level 1 - for everyone
Level 2 - for cyclists with experience of cycle tourism

Difficulty - For each trip we describe the characteristics of the terrain and possible difficulties. Our guides will accompany you on the whole route.

Here are some examples of "difficulties":
Difficulty: - none (short routes on flat or slightly inclined cycle tracks)
                 - route with some ascent and descent
                 - demanding due to the length of the route

Equipment for cycle touring
The touristic nature of our trips means that particular equipment and clothing are not required. Bicycles are provided by our organisation so participants just need to bring comfortable clothing. In addition, it is advisable to bring a small rucksack, flask, light windproof jacket, rain cape, hat, sun cream and sunglasses.
