Going on a longer trip, it is good to be prepared for a bit of everything. It is a good idea to bring a backpack in which to carry your supplies, sunscreen, warm clothes and anything else you could possibly need during the hike.
We suggest that you wear many thin layers of clothing as the weather in the mountains tend to change quickly. It is a good idea to plan the entire tour before the hike so that you know which path to follow. So pack your bags, set off and discover the idyllic Austrian nature.
