What you’ll need to bring:
- sunglasses and sunscreen
- warm clothes* (no shorts please, there is always a cold breeze up there)
- water bottle and water
- food for longer trips
- we also suggest a camera and binoculars (as well as chocolate for the guide)
*The guides usually wear a wool shirt, windstopper layer, or sweater. They always bring a rain jacket. Hiking pants are best, although jeans will do.
What we can provide (free of charge):
- boots, although you may be more comfortable in your own hiking shoes or boots (a good lug sole is essential)
- crampons (spikes for your boots) These are smaller, safer versions of the equipment used by mountaineers when climbing glaciated peaks.
- gloves, for protection against sharp or slippery ice
- hat (even sunny days can be quite cold)
- rain jacket and pants for overcast/rainy days
