5 miles, average 200m of up & down

Our Gentle walks are up to 5 miles in length, with an easy-going pace and lots of stops for taking photos and enjoying the scenery. They stay on relatively easy gradients with a maximum height gain of 300m (1000ft) – though usually it is considerably less than this. Depending on where the holiday is based, you might be rambling through woods, following a stream up to a waterfall, or walking beside a lake surrounded by mountains. The paths vary with the location, but can be rocky, uneven, or muddy in places.

This grade is perfect if you like 5-mile walks or if you’re new to ‘walking’ and want to improve your fitness. If you walk a short distance to work each day / have a fairly active lifestyle – e.g. coping with small children / or occasionally do some other form of exercise, you’ll be fine. If you get very breathless on stairs, please consider our Easy Access Gentle grade above.
