With our simple trip grading symbol system you can choose your ideal trips and adventure that suits you. Due to the fact that the terrain, lengths of day, altitude and weather conditions of some particular trips are necessarily changeable, these grades system can only provide general indication. We have devised these grading systems as clear as possible. To gain the full knowledge of the trip you desire, please therefore read the associated trip dossier to understand the trip. And if you have any queries about the nature of a particular trip or its suitability for you, please contact us. We will be happy to help you.
