TOUR GRADES

We use a simple grading system to give you an idea of the level of fitness and riding/hiking experience required for each tour.

The grading system begins with Easy, which represents our easiest tours with short distances and few elevation gain, and goes up to Extreme, the most challenging tours, requiring a substantial amount of fitness and willpower!

Tour grade_EASY
