Practicalities For Walking

Useful Items To Enhance Your Yoga And Walking Holiday

Clothing

We schedule our walking retreats for the spring and autumn when temperatures are mild

You can never rule out a shower, so please bring a showerproof jacket

Evenings in early spring and late autumn can be fresh, but it’s always warm in the sun, so do bring light clothing plus a warm jacket

Walking Accessories

Supportive, waterproof shoes with a decent grip are essential for walking in all weathers.

A brimmed hat to keep the sun off your eyes, and a small rucksack for water and a snack won´t go amiss

Binoculars for wild-life spotting while walking are a plus. We provide hiking sticks and brollies for your convenience
