Our Trek Grading

Choosing the right trek for you


Your experience in the beautiful European Alps is paramount to us, therefore your choice of trek is very important. Each trek has its own level of demand, it is essential that you close a trek that suits your level of experience and fitness. We have graded each of our treks from 3 to 10 (low - high) to help you choose the hiking trail that is right for you. The level considers the difficulty of terrain, height gain and descent each day and the number of days you will be hiking.

Once you have decided on which trek is best for you, you will have time to get in good shape before you arrive in the Alps. For more tips & advice of how best to do this, take a look at our Fitness & Preparation page and if you have any questions about whether you are fit enough for a trek in the mountains we are here to help.

Need any further advice on trek fitness and preparation? Janet is working with MBT to support your preparation for the best trekking experience possible. Mindset, fitness, nutrition, hydration and maybe more... It may be just confirming what you already know makes sense for trekking in high places but Janet will be available to try and answer your questions and offer ideas to get you ready to go. JV will also be out and about this season with some of the guided groups.
