Fitness Level Requirements and Advice

At Fun Over Fifty we’re adamant that you’ll only ever travel with like minded guests. That’s why we are strict about our over 50’s policy and also why we are clear with the fitness ratings of our tours. To ensure that you select the right tour for you, we’ve developed a very clear set of fitness recommendations for our tours. These physical ratings clearly explain how much physical exertion is required to participate on each tour. Most tours require a moderate level of fitness, however there are others that offer a few more challenges, they are faster paced, cover some uneven terrain and include walking tours and stair components etc. We also understand that you may be looking for a well earned break and would prefer to unpack once and engage in a lower activity level tour – we’ve catered for you too!

For the well-being and duty of care to all passengers and crew we impose a strict policy on our physical ratings, have a look at our terms and conditions to see where you stand.

Have a careful read of the table below to ensure you choose a tour that suits your physical ability. Bear in mind that you are travelling in a group environment and will be expected to keep up with your fellow travellers. Of course if you’re concerned about what is best for you, speak to one of our experienced consultants. We’ll be honest about what you can expect, our goal is for you to enjoy your tour, not struggle through it!
