Biblical Expeditions endeavors to maximize the participants’ time in the land providing them with a most unique and rewarding journey. At times, the pace is demanding and daily activities often go for a full 8-10 hours and walking 2-4 miles a day. Most Biblical Expeditions travel locations are not flat, nor are they smooth under foot; therefore, Biblical Expeditions strongly recommends that participants begin preparing for the physical demands of the program long before their departure date. While a treadmill can supplement your exercise habits, remember that uneven and rocky paths require much more ankle strength, balance and stamina.
So in your physical preparation for your program, get outside and walk trails and paths that provide an uneven surface to prepare you for the walking you will do in the lands of the Bible.
If participants are physically prepared, the program will be far more enjoyable, educational, and meaningful. Participants should consult their physician concerning these requirements and any medications or conditions that may have an impact on their ability to participate fully
