Hiking with a pole
When you go hiking with poles you automatically get to enjoy a number of benefits. Heading uphill is easier on your knees, while heading downhill you can be sure of your step. On straight routes you enjoy a nice rhythm, which is motivating.
Hiking shoes and trekking shoes are outdoor shoes for good routes, easy terrain and shorter tours. We will provide advice on what these are and the differences between these and more stable mountaineering shoes.
Keep in mind that the weather conditions in the mountains can change fast. Depending on the weather rain-wear is also recommended – it provides protection from sun, wind and rain alike.
