Make certain you are in good health and in sufficiently good physical condition to handle the exertion required by the trip.
The concept behind our trips is the enjoyment of an active holiday, and the fitter you are the more you will enjoy yourself. So we recommend preparing for this holiday.
The best training is to practice what you are going to be doing: walking uphill, downhill and cross-country (on uneven terrain). Train and build up gradually to avoid causing yourself an injury!
Using your gear before departure (boots, day-pack, clothing, etc.) gives familiarity and comfort while on the walk, and helps identify any potential problems.
Travel insurance is recommended on our holiday.
If you do not already have insurance, you can purchase it online. There are many options with varying prices and coverage.
Residents in the EEA (European Economic Area) should apply for a European Health Card before travelling abroad. This includes the European Union, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland.
UK residents can apply for their European Health Card online at www.nhs-e111-ehic.org.uk/
