Our Multi-day "day pack only" trips are a wonderful opportunity for women to explore new destinations and enjoy longer periods of time without carrying an overnight pack. To ensure that you have an enjoyable and safe adventure, it is essential that you have a suitable level of fitness and preparation.
For each day of bushwalking, you should have good fitness and health and be prepared to tackle mountains with some steep ascents and descents on uneven terrain. The walks may range from 5-7 hours in duration, and you should already be engaging in regular exercise three-four times per week to be comfortable completing this trip. Prior experience in hill walking and bushwalking is highly recommended, and adding stairs to your routine will provide extra benefits.
We understand that assessing your fitness level can be difficult, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions.
