Hiking & Fitness
Our Fitness Hiking Series is designed to help you challenge yourself, improve your mental health and get fit. We train on Tuesday nights, hiking together as a team to cover a distance of 10-14km over 2 - 3 ½ hours. The fitness hikes run all year round and our participants particularly enjoy the night hiking come winter. We promise you'll be feeling invigorated after one of these sessions, whatever the season! We are the only hiking company in Sussex that specifically do night hiking fitness sessions.
The hills and terrain of Sussex will challenge us on these micro-adventures as we move through neolithic burial grounds, hill forts, and ancient footpaths.
On Thursday evenings we have conditioning sessions using weighted equipment such as sandbags, kettlebells and slam balls to help maintain strength and power. We follow the short session up with a quick hike to the top of a hill! This transfers across to improve hiking or whatever sport we choose to do.
Building on our training in the Fitness Hiking series we like to rack up a few extra miles with our day hikes.
This gives you some extra time to work on testing your kit and clothing in different weather, visit new sites, and playing with different navigation techniques both old and modern. It’s also a pleasure to get a deeper understanding of different areas within Sussex.
Hiking in a multitude of areas across the South Downs National Park really highlights how expansive it is.
Join us on some of our tours either as a one-off or regularly to improve upon your trekking experiences.
Bigger Adventures - Multi day tours
This is what it has all come to.
The Fitness Hiking series has built up your stamina. The day hikes have honed your understanding of kit and navigation. Your confidence has grown and now you're ready.... and if not... the team at FEAT are with you each step.
We offer overnight stealth trips in Sussex to multi-day trekking in the highlands. The longer trips are really about getting out there and feeling the excitement of having comfortably thrived in the elements.
Mini FEAT Parent and child hiking
Take some time out, bond with the kids, and chat with other parents whilst on the trail. These are mini hikes of about 3 hours including a picnic stops that helps to build an affinity with the outdoors. We can even try a hand at refreshing our navigation skills in a way to get the kids involved.
Parents, pack a bit of food and water so we can have a relax and a bite at the top of a hill.
