What fitness level do I need?
The Kosciuszko Summit Tour requires a moderate level of physical fitness. The track will take us through varied terrain including some river crossings and steep mountains passes. Summiting the highest mountain in Australia does mean there will be some uphill climbs! But thankfully there are equal parts downhill and flat terrain on our circuit. You should be prepared to walk 10-12 km per day carrying a 10 kg pack. Luckily there are plenty of scenic places to stop and catch our breath (and a photo or two) along the way!
To provide you with the best ‘pre-trip’ training, we consulted one of Sydney’s leading Personal Trainers, to develop a custom program specifically targeting the key muscles and fitness requirements for this hike. It’s a combination of both HIIT and strength training and will have you well on your way to success! The training program is included with all tour bookings!
And as with anything in this world, if you have any questions, concerns, or queries, we really are the best people to speak to! Plus we’re super friendly and love a chat! Head on over to our Contact Us page for all the details.
