Our tours are active tours so a reasonable level of fitness and swimming ability is recommended but not essential. If you enjoy hiking through gorges, mountain climbing, swimming under waterfalls and generally enjoy participating in activities this trip is perfect for you. If you are "not quite so fit" you will still get a lot of enjoyment from the tour - there are a lot of places we visit that does not require a high level of fitness.
Note: walks vary in duration and grades but you have the choice if you want to "go all the way" or only part way.
