An adventure for all ages. You are bound to get a little dirty while having a lot of fun. Scrambling tour 2,5 hrs, medium difficulty as we walk in somtimes very rugged terrain with a lot of steep passages. (Alternative ways are available on some legs of the route.)

A hill fort is supposed to be inaccessible to invaders and easy to defend. This one has all these qualities, and a great view as well.

We will walk up and down on exposed cregs, along tree plantations and in mixed wood. We scramble up along the slanting rocks passing gorges and fissures. At the summit you can eat your snack/picnic and marvel at the view of great ships far out at sea.

Scrambling is "a walk up steep terrain involving the use of one's hands". It is an ambiguous term that lies somewhere between trekking, hillwalking and rock climbing.

Soft adventure
This is an activity with a medium level of difficulty. We have planned the tour with families in mind. If you suffer from vertigo there is always an optional route ahead. No previous climbing or trekking experience needed, but we assume regular helth and fitness level, but your knees and feet joints must be up to the job in rugged terrain...

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS "BAD" ???
Depending on prevailing weather conditions the departure time and/or location may be subject to change, or the tour may be cancelled altogether. If cancelled, we will reimburse the entire amount, minus a small administration fee. However it is our ambition to offer an alternative activity. For instance, if walking/hiking is hazardous due to a thunderstorm approaching, we may offer you indoor climbing instead. If so, you will be reimbursed any price difference, except for a small administration fee. Please note that it is always the tour leader/guide of each activity that has the final say, after communication with the participants or group leader.
