    ACTIVITY LEVEL:

    Rated:  Easy to Moderate
    Plenty of flexibility in activity level on this trip!  Each evening we'll review each activity for the following day and help you stay within a level that meets your needs and desires.

    For moderate activities participants should be comfortable hiking or walking a minimum of 5 miles/day with a minimum of 1000 feet elevation gain.

    For easy activities participants should be comfortable walking 1 - 2 miles/day with 100 - 200 feet elevation gain.

    We work hard to help everyone stay within a physical level that is right for them.

    For all activities a daypack is sufficient. Generally no technical climbing or special abilities are needed UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED. 

    To participate in any activities other than laying on the beach, it's wise to start a good physical conditioning program prior to the trip.
