In Vèrtic we are specialists. Equip yourself with us
It consists of walking on easy marked ground, whether in the mountains or not. It looks like trekking, but it does not have that adventure character so much.
As we have already said, the terrain is simpler, with good roads and well signposted. The duration can be one or several days, but in the case of several days, it is easy to find infrastructures that make life more comfortable and that allow us to supply ourselves regularly: Shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafeterias and accommodation where to spend the night. For all this, it is usually not necessary to carry a large backpack and one of about 30 or 35 liters is more than enough for a multi-day activity.
The possibility of finding transport allows you to skip stages and resume the journey later and as we can get more or less of everything on the fly, we do not have a closed program or calendar, being able to stay longer in some places ... The fact of being able to be supplied by the The road and the accommodations make the use of porters or pack animals not necessary.
For this activity it will be necessary to have comfortable footwear that protects the foot, but as the path is good and the backpack small, it does not need to be heavy, the clothes have to be comfortable and appropriate to the weather. In addition we may need some accessories such as telescopic poles, first aid kit, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat / cap, gloves, personal hygiene kit, spare clothes ... etc.
Depending on the style chosen, more material and a larger backpack may be necessary ... For example, if we sleep in camping.
In any case, this activity is usually carried out in a fairly controlled environment and there are usually easy support possibilities, so it is an activity that lends itself to improvisation and you can easily change the plans on the fly.
