A small but growing number of our tours are designated as walking tours and offer countryside hikes as an integral ingredient. An indication of the walking involved on each of these tours, with details about distances covered and terrain, is included in each tour description, and we ask that you read this carefully before making a booking.
On all of these tours, participants need to be well used to country walking and have a good level of fitness and balance. There are ascents and descents, climbs over stiles and terrain which can be uneven, loose, slippery or muddy. Appropriate footwear and clothing are essential. Only in weather conditions which are so extreme as to be dangerous would a walk be cancelled.
