Outdoor West Hiking to the summit: SCRAMBLE to the hill fort

Hiking to the summit: SCRAMBLE to the hill fort

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. Click the BOOK NOW! button to see dates, time and price categories for different departures.
