Activity Level Designations
Tour destinations vary in weather, activities, type of terrain and in the number and lengths of walks. Each tour is assigned an Activity Level that describes the conditions normally encountered. It is important to be aware of the Activity Level before booking to ensure you can enjoy the tour to the fullest extent.
EASY Mainly short walks (less than 1.6km/1 mile) with little elevation change (up to 100m/325 ft) on well-graded terrain with no steep or difficult sections; altitude below 2000m/6000 ft; weather not excessively warm (< 32˚C/90˚F) or cool (> 5˚C/40˚F); no special skills required. Suitable for occasional walkers.
MODERATE Mainly short walks (less than 1.6km/1 mile) but including one or more longer walks (up to 4.8km/3 miles) with modest ascent/descent (200m/650 ft); paths are well marked but may be rocky or slippery with some steep sections; altitude below 2500m/8000 ft; weather may be hot (> 32˚C/90˚F) or cold (< 5˚C/40˚F). May include activities such as rafting, horseback riding or snorkelling. Suitable for participants of average fitness. The longer walks are optional and GeoCultura can suggest alternative activities for that part of a tour.
CHALLENGING As MODERATE, except walks may be up to 16km/10 miles; elevation changes may exceed 300m/1000 ft and some sections may be steep, exposed or precipitous. A good level of fitness is required. The longer walks are optional and GeoCultura can suggest alternative activities for that part of a tour.
Participants are encouraged to assess their suitability for tour activities. The Tour Manager can usually suggest alternatives if someone prefers to skip a particular activity. Please contact GeoCultura with any questions about the physical requirements.
