Strenuous walking holidays

Treks like Everest Base Camp, Mount Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains or the remote peaks of Los Glaciares National Parks in Patagonia are definitely strenuous walking holidays, and definitely for regular gym goers, runners or serious hikers. These trips take you into challenging mountain terrain, usually at altitude, so you need good all round fitness to adjust to this too. Note: strenuous walking holidays are nearly always guided.
