Preparation

Wear whatever is comfortable. It is recommended to have a sturdy pair of broken-in trail shoes, boots, or sneakers. It is preferable to dress in layers and wear clothing that will wick away perspiration and keep you dry and comfortable. You will receive a recommended equipment and clothing list when you sign up for a tour.

Each tour has a different recommended equipment list and it depends on excepted weather conditions in that region. As a general rule you should bring appropriate clothing to fit the season (think about wearing layers), a day pack to carry extra snacks and water, binoculars, a waterproof hat and coat, sunscreen (depending on time of year) and comfortable/waterproof footwear.

Some tours have limited space in vehicles and therefore backpacks or smaller suitcases are recommended.

You will receive a recommended equipment list by email once you have purchased your tour.
