This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
On Day 3 & 5 we are going to take coastal paths and hike between 5-7 kilometres/3-4.5 miles. Hikes are not demanding and follow established paths, but you will need a basic level of fitness to fully enjoy them.
