  • How do you grade your trips? Please find our trip grading here. We grade trips via National Parks grading guidelines, length of activity and physical demands. Every trip is different and will have aspects within a departure that are harder than others. It s important you read the itinerary carefully and make sure the trip is suitable for your fitness. Please note, changes in weather conditions may make a trip more difficult on the day. For example - windy conditions, rainfall, hot or cooler weather. Even if a trip is graded easy , it still sits within an adventure context. This means you may be paddling in windy conditions, walking up and down steps. Easy does not mean a sedate adventure. For all our trips, a minimum level of physical capability and willingness to be outside on the adventure is required.
