How we grade our walking holidays in Britain?

All our hiking holidays in the UK are graded from one to four, which indicates how challenging each route is to hike. This rating is calculated primarily using the distance and the ascent of the walk. Our level one holidays are gentle, making them perfect for first-timers or those who enjoy a relaxing pace. Our level one+ hikes are still gentle, but may have some more challenging sections along the way.

Our level two holidays include more varied routes, and usually appeal to travellers who wish to be more active. Following this, our level three and four holidays are more advanced, with routes often appealing to regular hikers.

This system helps you to choose a trip that best suits you. As you take a look at each of our walking holidays in Britain below, you'll be able to see how challenging each route is by looking at the 'Activity level' section.
