Frequently Asked Questions

    • I enjoy running for about 20-30 mins every few days and walk quite a bit (but nothing excessive). Am I physically suitable for this trip? What if I get too exhausted?

      I think that this tour will be manageable for you as long as you are fit and determined. This is a hike with a lot of ups and downs. You can possibly get a ride with the luggage transfer company or local transportation from one cabin to another, if you need a rest day. This tour is self -guided so you do have more flexibility.
