All travel is by vans. Expect drives on remote dirt roads. The entire trip takes place at elevations between sea level and 3000 feet. Most hikes are short and easy, but there will be some scrambling and some longer hikes. Our pace will be leisurely, and assistance will be given, but you must be comfortable standing and walking for several hours at a time.
