ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES

We cannot offer a reception so go straight to your start/finish camp as the camps are so far apart and arrival times are varied, each camp is available and open and facilities are self explanatory and the trails are well marked.• The Num-Num trail is a circular route and you might start your hike at any one of the four camps. • Your itinerary will be on your invoice • There is secure parking, but you should leave all valuables at home or take them with you. • Arrival and departure times from each of the camps area it is suggested be as below but we are flexible. • Arrival time is no earlier than 14h00 and no later than 19h00 but the camps are not locked so if you come later it is fine.
