6 essentials in the backpack of any hiker
At Camping Mougás we know that many of our campers are also great trekkers. And that is why we have decided to do a review of everything you need to carry in your backpack and walk in any of the routes offered by Oia and its surroundings.
Like it or not, the mobile phone has become essential in our day to day. And also on any hiking trail. It allows us to take photos, check the weather, follow maps, inform us of a certain place... And most importantly: to call in case of emergency. That is why it is very important to carry it always charged and incorporate an external battery to our backpack
It is advisable to always carry our sunscreen in the backpack and apply it before starting to walk. Thus, we protect our skin being able to enjoy our route and the beauty of Camping Mougás environment.
It is another of the basic elements in any backpack. It is important to bring enough water for the route because we will need to drink along the way. Our advice is to place the canteen in an easily accessible pocket of the backpack, to be able to pick it up when we need it.
If the route takes all day it is important to bring food (such as sandwiches, which are very comfortable to eat in the forest) but also snack. And, even if we are only going to walk a few hours, it is advisable to put some snacks in the backpack, like energy bars.
5. Security pack: First aid kit, knife, flashlight, whistle, ...
Depending on the type of route we take we will need all or only some of these things. The first aid kit is always important to incorporate it and add products according to our needs. Some of the most common are analgesics, plasters or an antiseptic.
6. Comfortable clothes and footwear
Clothing and footwear are fundamental. They should be comfortable and light. In the case of boots, it is a good idea to use footwear that we are already accustomed. Our advice is also to always bring something warm and spare socks.
You would start to prepare your backpack for this summer and thus be able to enjoy the beautiful natural environment offered by Camping Mougás. We will wait for you!
