Trip intensity evaluation
Are you ready for one of our trips? Each of our adventures is assigned a difficulty rating by the type of a trip: Levels 1 - 4. Below is a detailed description of each level of difficulty specified in the activity. Just find the type of the trip, you are interested in, and the relevant level of difficulty. Of course, let us know if you have any further questions. Our main goal is that you get a positive experience and good impressions of the trip. For individuals who have any medical contraindications for physical activity we do not recommend choosing trips of the 3rd and 4th levels of difficulty in order not to endanger, first of all, themselves, as well as other guests and guides.
Level 1 Light:

Physical activity takes several hours a day with rest breaks. You must have skills of being in the mountains, horse riding or cycling, the ability to use special equipment like trekking poles; the ability to move along more complex mountainous terrain, to cross small rivers, etc. Active programs full of physically active days.

Hiking will be from 6 km and more a day. Physical fitness and endurance are very important. Overnights are in tents, so it is necessary to have experience of being in the mountains, installing and arranging a bivouac. You will have a great view from the tent to the wild nature during the day and the endless starry sky at night.
