We also offer personal advice to anyone who needs it, by email or on the phone, thus ensure that you find a holiday suitable for your abilities and desires. This is not a downhiller’s holiday and is classed as an "All mountains" trip.
Good fitness from regular exercise sessions and time spent actively involved in mountain biking. This is an "All Mountain" trip with a good downhill bias. There are climbs every day, combined with the high mountain terrain and full days in technical ground.
There is a great deal of single track riding, sometimes on narrow, steep, rocky trails which cling to the sides of the mountains. In places there are options to avoid the most technical riding, but a good level of skill and confidence is required throughout the tour. "Drops-off" are avoidable if needs be.
