Difficulty Levels

Do you want to know what your route will be like before you choose it? Using our difficulty level guide, you can get an idea of how challenging your journey will be and how to prepare before you begin.

No one knows better than you how far you can go and how much you want to challenge yourself. The most important thing for you is to choose a route that fits your expectations and needs, is that you take into account your experience and your fitness.

Our guide to Difficulty Levels

All difficulty levels consider the daily distance on the route, ascents and descents, type of terrain travelled, weather conditions, altitude, and knowledge and experience required. For example, a route can be considered as low for the average daily distance to be travelled, but when it includes multiple ascents or mountainous terrain, it can be medium high. If you have any questions, contact us and we will help you choose the route that suits you best.All difficulty levels consider the daily distance on the route, ascents and descents, type of terrain travelled, weather conditions, altitude, and knowledge and experience required.
