LEVELS OF COMFORT
Each trip is given a level of comfort, which helps you choose a trip that is suitable to your preferences. The level of comfort lets you know how much 'difference' you can expect from the travel - whether there's any familiar food available, if you'll need to adapt a little or a lot to the surroundings and the kind of accommodation you can expect.
General - A generally easy trip but there may be some remote lodging, picnic in the fields or language barrier.
Explorer – Expect multishare accommodation, public transportation, and lack of drinking water.
Wild – Expect outdoor sleep, or tents at the river bank, no toilet, public bus, self-cooking, and no access to western-style food.
Each trip is given a different category which indicates how much physical activity is required. This table helps you choose not only a trip that is suitable to your physical abilities, but also one that you will enjoy taking part in. The grades are:
General - Light walking and hiking that is suitable for most fitness levels.
Explorer - May include moderate hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking and other activities that require only an average/moderate level of fitness to enjoy.
Wild - May include high altitude hiking of up to 8 hours per day or other activities that require a moderately high level of fitness.
Please note: Even one element which could be a small part of the trip may increase the Rating of whole the trip to a higher level. For instance, a Western and Eastern Rhodopes biking trip is given a Wild grade only because there is a 8 hours cycling on the fourth day. In any cases, you may choose not to participate in these activities before or during the tour.
