    FAQs

    This route is one of the most complicated in the UK, so good physical preparation is important to be able to enjoy it to the fullest. 

    If you have no experience in walking, it is advisable that you take another route of less difficulty and intensity. Although if you want to venture out, we recommend walking through challenging terrain at least 3 months in advance. 

    Another tip is to train in the gym, or with a personal trainer to improve your fitness with cardio and endurance exercises.

    The best time is in spring and autumn, when weather conditions are favourable for walking the wooded paths, moors and other sections on the route.

    In summer, the sun will be much stronger, and in winter the weather conditions are too extreme to take the route.

    We recommend that you book as soon as you are sure about your dates, as accommodation can fill up very quickly in this area.
