What Should I Pack for My Hiking Holiday?

To ensure you're well-prepared for your hiking holiday, we've put together a packing list for you:

  • Hiking Boots: A good and comfortable pair of hiking boots is essential to protect your feet and ensure you can walk stably and safely.
  • Hiking Clothing: Pack light but warm and breathable clothing to protect against weather conditions. A rain jacket and pants are also recommended, as the weather in the mountains can change quickly.
  • Backpack: A good backpack that is comfortable to carry and has enough space for your gear and food.
  • Food and Water: Pack enough water and snacks to sustain you during the hike.
  • First Aid: A small first aid kit can be very useful in case of injury.
  • Maps and Navigation: A map of the area and a compass or GPS device can help you orient yourself and find your way.
  • Sun and Insect Protection: Don't forget to protect yourself from sunburn and insect bites.
  • Other Equipment: Depending on the season and weather conditions, it may be wise to bring gloves, a hat, headlamp, etc.

And of course, if you want to carry a small bottle of hiking schnapps in your backpack to enjoy a sip at the summit, then you're just like us. ;)

Enjoy your hiking holiday!
