Date: Saturday, 09 March 2019

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A EXPLORER TOUR, NOT A REGULAR TOUR:

Explorer tours are new routes I am trying out for the first time, this means I am following a route I have on my hiking GPS, route descriptions and all the info to be able to do this tour. 

But unlike all my regular tours, I have not done it myself yet. There is a chance we might do some kilometeres more, there might be parts we cannot do, or unexpected obstacules. But you still have a guide, transport, insurrance and most likely a great time, but you need a bit of an adventure spirit.

EXPLORER TOURS ARE ALWAYS SPECIFIED AS SUCH AND ALL OTHER TOURS ARE WELL KNOW TOURS
