Recently Cape to Cape Explorer Tours received the great news that one of our end-to-end walkers from the 2012 spring season had gone on to use her Cape to Cape experience to win another great walking holiday!

Josie's email sprouting the news!

Josie, and her husband Tom, completed the Cape to Cape Track in November 2012 as a goldern wedding anniversary present to themselves.

They joined a Cape to Cape Explorer Tours group and completed the Track in 7 days of guided walking and stayed in the one accommodation base.

Josie and Tom certainly turned out to be an inspiration, not only to other walkers on the tour, but to the Cape to Cape Explorer Tours’ staff as well.

‘They were just travelling so well!’, says Senior Guide Gene Hardy. “There was never a dull moment with these two around, they really got on well and even set the pace when the going got tough, it was obvious that they had trained for this walk!”

Participants thriving under the long distances and challenging terrain is a regular theme on the Track.

Recent work by Australian Academic Rob Saunders, titled ‘Personal transformation through long-distance walking*’ really sums up what regular long distance walkers have know for some time.

‘Long-distance walking can help people cope with change and make enduring positive changes in their lives’ states the report.

The paper draws conclusions from interviews with twenty five long-distance walkers on multi-day hikes and suggests these experiences are leading to an increased self-confidence, and other enduring changes which enhance well-being.

‘By fostering engagement with people, settings and challenging tasks, long-distance walking is found to facilitate relationships, meaning and a sense of achievement.’

Cape to Cape Explore Tours have a number of positions still available on the autumn and spring end-to-end experiences for 2013.
