How far can I go?
When you go out in the woods and fields can be expected to catch about 3 km per hour. Then it is included to the terrain might be a little lumpy, to stop and look at things along the way and in a comfortable pace.
How far you can go for a day of hiking and how fast it goes, of course, is very individual and depending on the terrain and how much luggage to carry with them. If you are out on a day trip, perhaps the goal is not the hike without taking you up to the picnic area or a special attraction. Maybe it’s just in time with a walk at 2-4 km before it’s time for lunch or coffee.
If you are looking for days and walk on for example upplandsleden, daily stages at 10-15 km to feel quite right. Then it is the journey itself that is the goal.
Great to have on the day of the tour
- Backpack-should you go a bit is backpack always preferred to wear the stuff in.
- Rain gear
- Seat cover to the coffee break
- Packed lunch (see tips at the bottom of this page)
- Water bottle-extra important warm days.
- Mittens and hat (if you fall or spring)-Begins to freeze, put on a hat. It is through the head the most heat is lost.
- Extra shirt to put on during break
- First aid – Should always be present, you never know when an accident is in front.
Other things that can be useful for is camera, binoculars, flora, bird book suitable, cap, sunglasses, Sun lotion, map, compass and mosquito repellent as well as backpacks from Allsetbackpacks.
What should I wear
You’ll go far, consider an additional time on what you put on your feet. chafing can easily destroy a nice excursion. Hiking boots, sneakers or rubber boots, depending on the weather.
Other things to keep in mind is that cotton dries slowly if it gets wet. Therefore it may be better to choose clothes in synthetics. If you are out there when it’s cold, keep in mind that cotton also cools when it gets damp. Better is the wool that heats both when dry and wet.
Wear comfortable clothes that are not too tight. It is the air that exists between articles of clothing that heats. The famous multi-layer principles means that you rather should have several thin layers a a thick. This partly because it gets hotter when there is air between the layers expand and partly because it is easier to regulate the dress code.
