Walking Holidays Kit List



Walking – Kit List

This kit list is in no way exhaustive. We would always urge you to adapt and add to based on your own walking experience. If you are trekking with us, please see the separate trekking kit list.

As with all mountain ranges, the Pyrenees can be unpredictable and with varying weather. You can begin a walk on a glorious sunny day, go through a patch of driving rain, then finish sunning yourself again… therefore we advise you bring lots of layers that can be easily taken on and off.
