Your personal rucksack checklist

Pack today – stress free tomorrow

A well-known saying states “Preparation is everything”. Can you still remember how, as a child you packed your school bag in the evening and were stress-free in the morning? It is the same for us when hiking in the Salzkammergut. Our tip: pack your rucksack the evening before and in the morning just pop in your snacks and drinks. Then it will be a relaxing start to an exciting day of hiking.

  • Sturdy, preferably ankle high boots with good grip, along with a pair of knee length socks
    Hiking clothing consisting of hiking trousers with detachable legs (Zip-pants). Do not go for jeans. These get soaked in rainy weather and in intense sunshine, jeans contract and become too tight.
    T-shirt or shirt
    Long sleeved shirt
    Good fitting backpack - for a day trip 20 - 30 litres
    Sun protection (sunglasses, cap, cream)
    Wind-cold-wet protection such as rain jacket, if necessary hood and gloves (in the high alpine terrain standard)
    Lip balm
    Spare underwear (T-shirt, socks)
    Glasses (if necessary)
    Personal medication
    Sufficient drinks (at least 1 litre)
    Meals (snacks)
    Dried fruit

If you follow these small tips, there is nothing to get in the way of a memorable and unforgettable natural experience as part of the “Obertrauner Wanderherbst”. And if you still have questions then do not hesitate to contact your certified hiking guide Barbara Bichler who always has a sympathetic ear for your hiking protégés.
