Find the trek which suits you!

Have you always wanted to spend a few days trekking but could never pluck up the courage? We help you to find the route that will suit you in order to enable you to surpass yourself and only come back with good memories.

How long?

The length is an essential piece of information as what defines a trek is the idea of independence. Yet it’s precisely from this that the difficulty arises, as it’s about leaving with sufficient material without tiring yourself out carrying it.

To begin with it’s advisable to go for 2-3 days.

You can therefore test both your physical resistance and your appetite for independent life.According to what you learn from these few days it will be possible to go for longer and further!

Beware of the gradient!

To work out the difficulty of a route it’s the gradient which counts even more than the length.

By way of an example, here is what we would recommend:

- You start with => 3 to 4 hours of walking/day – 300m travelling uphill/day

– If you’ve already done a few treks and want to go further go for => 4 to 6 hours of walking/day – 400 to 800m of travelling uphill/day

– If you go on treks regularly then go for => 6 hours of walking/day – up to 1000m of travelling uphill/day

– If you’ve been training and know your ability then go for => 6 hours of walking/day – plus 1000m of travelling uphill/day.

What level of independence?

Depending on your physical fitness and how regularly you practise, you can go completely on your own or partially. Requiring you to carry your bedding and a tent, complete independence is of course more demanding. However, several solutions are possible to lighten the load.

You can organise your route stopping every night at a shelter, walking with an animal like for example a donkey, which will carry the majority of the load for you. Lastly, some treks are undertaken with carriers who carry the majority of the materials!
