Your hiking outfits will depend on the climate of your destination and the season of your visit, so make sure you check your itinerary for detailed advice on what you should expect. Regardless of your destination, you’ll need sturdy walking boots with good ankle support are essential, as well as appropriate socks to reduce rubbing.
If warm weather is expected, a sun hat, sunglasses and appropriate clothing, such as shorts and t-shirts made from breathable materials, will be essential. Keep in mind that hotter climates, such as those in deserts, can plunge to chilly temperatures at night, so be sure to bring layers, particularly if you are camping. A raincoat is also recommended.
You should also consider whether your destination requires a more conservative dress code. Many of our walking tours integrate cultural activities that may require a shawl or headscarf.
If you’re headed to a snowy destination, you’ll need a warm hat or headband, and a neckwarmer. We recommend two pairs of gloves, with one waterproof pair. Be sure to remember sunglasses, as the sunlight reflecting from the snow can be very intense!
