UPDATE 2020/3/24: see an updated notice here
Upcoming hikes are cancelled
We’re assuming that we’re not going to be able to operate any hikes until after February 24th, and possibly longer than that.
Why are the hikes cancelled?
Scenic areas are closed down—some of our hikes pass through ticketed areas. All the scenic areas we have been in contact with are currently closed, and their staff are not permitted to admit visitors until further notice.
Villages are closed to visitors—we have hikes that start off in or around villages, and our local contacts in these villages have reported that they are not permitted to receive visitors until further notice.
When can we start hiking again?
We’re making enquiries with local contacts and scenic area staff for news on opening times and hiking.
When we do start hiking again we will have some extra terms and conditions for participation—please read our information about Operating hikes under COVID-19 precautions.
