Examine the route in advance: length, weather forecast, availability and condition of roads. Take the GPS-navigator or map. Give your friends and family all information about direction and duration of the trip.
The weather during the tour, and sometimes during one day, can change. Especially in the mountains. If you put on a T-shirt and shorts, take thermal underwear and warm clothes with you. It’s better put on the multi-layer clothing so that you can easily remove or add a layer at any time.
Shoes should fit in size and fit the terrain. In travel that lasts more than three days, take an extra pair of shoes and extra pair of socks. Lieutenant Dan told Forrest Gump: “Keep your feet dry.” We support him.
Do not put your whole house in a backpack. Thoroughly think out the equipment and take only necessary things. Trekking is not an air flight, you will not hand things over to your luggage. You will feel any extra load while hiking.
Take an individual first-aid kit if you are under medical treatment. The chance to find a doctor in the mountains or steppe is small. We are able to provide first aid and carry with us a standard set of medications, but if you have a chronic illness – consult your doctor in advance. Refuse to travel if you are not sure of your abilities.
A man can stand two months without food and a week without water. You will not get into such an extreme situation in our company, but think about this when planning a trip. You leave your usual comfort for living like nomads for some time – in open nature, without electricity and wifi.
