    From relaxed (low) to ones where you need to be fit to join in.


    No surprises here. These tours/activities are those most anyone can do if they are fine with fairly flat walks and getting in and out of transport.


    Like to be active, even very active, but not pushed too far. This is the one for you.


    These tours/activities require you to be very fit. Probably not suitable for children.
