Tour Activity Levels

ACTIVITY LEVELS

With such a wide ranging and diverse collection of travel options we want to make sure that you choose the right holiday and experience for you. 

Each tour throughout our website list an activity level blue footprint icon to guide you on the type of itinerary and the level of challenge one can expect to encounter while travelling on the holidays. 

The below information will give you an explanation of each of the levels to assist you in making the right trip choice for you.

Of course if you’re concerned about what is best for you, please speak to one of our experienced travel coordinators.  Our goal is for you and your fellow passengers to enjoy and make the most of your villa holiday experience.

There are 5 levels: Relaxed, Moderate, Active, Highly Active and Challenging, and each one is rated by the number of blue footprints.
