What equipment do I need to bring with me?
Your most important item is, of course, a pair of comfortable walking boots with ankle support and a sole that provides grip as some of the terrain can be rugged and loose underfoot. It can be cold – especially high in the mountains – so you should bring some warm clothing, particularly in early Spring and late Autumn.We suggest bringing a walking pole if possible although we do have some we can lend you.
And, just in case . . . a lightweight waterproof. We hope you won’t need it. Mostly we will be walking in dry weather and warm sunshine, so casual, comfortable, summer clothes will generally suffice. A hat and sun protection cream is essential. A small rucksack for carrying lunch is also recommended and you might consider a walking pole. Also a small lunch box would be useful.
