The essentials

What you must have if you want to hike properly !

Going on a hike is good ! Going on a hike in the Ventadour-Egletons-Monédières territory is very good ! But going on a hike, well prepared, in the Ventadour-Egletons-Monédières territory, it’s even better !

Here, we give you a list of some essentials you need to think about to be ready for any eventuality !

  • Shoes: Of course, this is the first thing you need to think about ! Comfortable, they must guarantee the maintenance of the foot and the ankle.

  • The backpack: between 20 and 40 liters, your backpack must allow you to store your stuff to avoid cluttering.

  • Clothing: Always wear clothes that allow you to protect yourself. We generally speak of the “3-layer system”: synthetic fiber underwear, polar fleece and windbreaker.

  • Bottle of water: because yes, we must remember to hydrate when we hike ! Essential, in summer and winter.

  • A multifunctional knife: to be released only when necessary, but which can be extremely useful.

  • A flashlight: if the night falls or you walk a little darker paths, a flashlight will help you find your way.

Compass, cap, camera or other binoculars are also useful accessories when going on a hike. So be sure to equip yourself before leaving.
