Do I need to be fit to join a guided walk?

Walking is known to be a great activity for staying fit and healthy. With Country Adventures you can do that, while at the same time exploring some truly amazing places and hidden gems right on our doorstep here in the UK.

‘Am I fit enough’ is a question people ask. As with any physical activity a certain level of fitness is needed to enjoy and get the most out of the activity. Our walking grades are useful in helping you decide which guided walk is best for you, but if you are uncertain about your fitness and it is your first walk with us, we’d recommend choosing an easier grade to see how you get on.

During a walk we definitely wouldn’t leave anyone trailing behind and early into a walk our experienced walk leader will be able to judge if someone has chosen a walk beyond their ability, so for the safety of the individual and the group, they may require the participant to retire from the walk at a convenient and suitable point.
