Hiking in the great outdoors gives you the perfect opportunity to disconnect from daily life and reconnect with nature. 

Outside of the immediate benefits of getting lots of fresh air, getting your boots on and going on a hike offers other benefits. It is weight-bearing, which helps maintain and build bone density. You get loads of natural Vitamin D which helps calcium absorption as well as combating low mood, stress and depression

Hiking can also help improve overall sleep quality thanks to exposure to natural light and disconnection from blue light. The endorphins released while hiking trigger positive feelings which help improve our mood and boost happiness. 

On top of all that, the social support of hiking with a group improves overall health and wellbeing. 


What to bring - Hiking

What we provide
  • Trained instructor/s
  • All the necessary technical equipment to lead the hike
  • Healthy snacks and water
What to bring
  • 15-25 litre backpack that has both a waist and check strap. Make sure your backpack has a waterproof cover. If it doesn’t, you can line the inside of the pack with a plastic bag. It’s a good idea to divide everything in the backpack into individual, smaller plastic bags to keep them dry, safe and accessible.
  • Comfortable pants that stretch, are very comfortable and do not limit your movement (denim jeans are absolutely not suitable as they hold the wet and take a long time to dry).
  • We recommend layering your clothing with a number of thin layers. Have a warm base layer (made of moisture-wicking material, avoid cotton as it retains dampness). Next is the mid layer, which can be made of fleece or wool (merino is good). You might choose a windproof top for this layer. Make sure this is a layer you can take off or put on easily, as the temperature demands.
  • The outer layer of waterproofs is absolutely essentially as getting wet is not a good idea. You will need a waterproof jacket and trousers to wear over you base and mid layers. A breathable fabric is recommended.
  • Light hiking boots or good quality trainers that are waterproof and protect your feet. I
  • It’s a good idea to invest in hiking socks, or good quality high-wicking socks for hiking.
  • A warm, well-fitted hat (preferably waterproof), or a peaked cap or visor during summer weather. Warm, well-fitting and preferably waterproof gloves and/or mittens.
  • Trekking poles if you have them.
  • Sunglasses and sunblock are always handy as is a sit mat to keep you dry when we sit for a break and to have a snack.
  • Water bottle.
