ELDERTREKS ACTIVITY LEVELS

 

We cater to people 50 and over

So with that in mind, we have created the activity level scale below because we realize that not everyone fifty and over is created equal. Please review the details of each level to determine which levels suite your tastes for any given trip.

Activity Level

ElderTreks rates their tours on an activity level ranging from 1 (easy) to 5 (challenging). Since not everyone has the same desire or capabilities for physical challenges, we have created the activity level scale below. Please review the details of each level to determine which levels suite your tastes for any given trip. This is a guideline only of what to expect on our tours. This is not to say that we don't stop and enjoy the views, it is simply a guideline of what physical condition you should be in to fully enjoy your adventure.
