A bear, however hard he tries, grows tubby without exercise.

About Distant Journeys


For 24 years Distant Journeys has specialized in offering hiking trips along some of Europe’s most classic and well-loved, long distance routes. In partnership with Distant Journeys, FitTrips of Maine gets hikers ready. Sarah MacColl and LIz Bradford have enjoyed the thousands of hours they’ve spent teaching step aerobics and working in their private gyms with clients of all ages. However, the most rewarding aspect of fitness training is when it helps clients successfully reach goals. If your goal this year is to hike from Chamonix to Zermatt or to complete the Coast to Coast walk in England, we can help.
