The excursions are aimed at families and the over-18s, while under-18s should be accompanies by an adult.

Adequate footwear and clothing are musts and participants should bring sufficient water and food.  The €5 per person cost includes bus journeys, insurance and the guides.

Places are limited and should be reserved beforehand by ringing 965632247 or the Municipal Sports schools.
