Difficulty is a relative term, and adventure is a state of mind. For some people one of our adventures may be a simple walk in the park, whilst for others it may be a terrifying, life changing experience.* 

*We're not saying that a walk in the park can't be life changing mind, not at all. 

Our ratings explained:

Easy

  • These trips are open to anyone with a sense of adventure and love of the outdoors, you won’t need to be super fit to have a blast.

  • As a benchmark, you should be happy hiking, cycling or paddling for a few hours, and won’t need any previous experience, just the urge to explore.

Active

  • When you’ve energy to burn, don your active wear and check out this range. You’ll be on the go much of the day, and probably get a sweat on. You won’t need any previous experience, just a head for adventure.

  • For example, you should be happy:
    - hiking for 5-6 hours on rough ground; or
    - cycling 40-50km; or 
    - paddling for 3-4 hours. 

Challenging

  • These will no doubt get you puffing and groaning. You’ll want to be fit and up for a challenge, and probably wish you’d trained a bit more. Some previous experience is likely helpful.

  • For example, you should be happy with a few days back to back:
    - hiking up to 8 hours in the hills; or
    - cycling up to 70km over hilly terrain; or 
    - paddling for 5-6 hours in choppy water

Tough

  • Our biggest and toughest adventures. They’ll push to the edge, but the edge is where it’s at right? Some previous experience will be needed. Bring your game face.

  • For example, you should be happy with a few days back to back:
    - 10 hours in steep terrain; or 
    cycling 100km+ in the hills; or 
    paddling up to 7 hours in tough conditions
