OUR WALKS – HEALTHY & FITNESS:
Most of Beaks & Feathers walks are low impact and only require a basic level of fitness. You will still need to feel confident with walking and being on your feet for the duration of the walk. We do offer shorter walks for those that want to explore but don’t currently have the fitness or the time available.
Although your medical and health requirements is your own concern, we still would like to know whether you have allergies (e.g. allergic reaction to bee stings and need to carry an epi pen) or have a medical condition that could impact your experience. It will allow us to better judge your safety and to be aware of your needs, in the unlikely event that our help may be required.
