Walking poles are great for extra balance on uneven terrain, they provide good anchor points on steep downhill sections and can assist you while hiking uphill. They also help with balance when hiking on snow covered trails and while crossing rivers and streams.
We use Helinox lightweight, strong, collapsable walking poles, that are quick and easy to assemble and pack away. We have poles suitable for hikers of any height.

Multiday hikes are very rewarding, but they can also be challenging, so its important to have a comfortable bed to slip into for the night. Hence the reason why we are very serious about the hiking equipment we provide for our clients.
We use four season down sleeping bags that are lightweight, comfortable and very easy to pack. The stuff sack, with some of your clothes such as a down jacket or a fleece top, inside it, can serve as a pillow.
Our self-inflating mats provide maximum comfort and warmth throughout the night and we use silk sleeping bag liners to reduce bulk and weight. The liners also provide extra warmth.

There are a number of things that will contribute to an enjoyable multiday hike and the backpack 🎒 is one of them.
Our backpacks provide good support and have a fully adjustable harness, which provides unlimited freedom of movement. This means that no matter what height you are, the harness can be adjusted to your size. Our backpacks come with a hydration system that fits up to 2.5L hydration bladder and has bladder hose access point. The backpack has multiple storage pockets with easy access, walking pole attachment, SOS label and a rain cover. We use Deuter 65 and 70 litre backpacks, which can be extended by a further 15 litres if required.
