Essential packing for the great outdoors

If you’re jetting off somewhere  less snowy but just as active, your packing list will change all over again. Swap the thermals for more lightweight clothing, keep your toiletries to a minimum and if you’re planning any overnight treks you’ll need your sleeping bag, mat and tent too. Add these items to the list depending on what your activities are.

Clothing and accessories for one week:

  • Waterproof jacket
  • Walking boots or shoes – wear these in before you travel to avoid blisters
  • 4 x pairs of hiking socks
  • 2 x pairs of lightweight walking trousers
  • 1 x waterproof trousers
  • 6-7 short-sleeve, mid-length and long-sleeve lightweight tops
  • 1 x fleece
  • Water shoes – if you’re planning on doing a lot of canoeing and kayaking
  • Dry bag – to keep your belongings dry, no matter how wet you get
  • Waterproof rucksack cover
  • Torch
  • Portable charger
  • Insect repellent
  • Water bottle
  • Medical kit – with a more active holiday you may want to increase your supplies. For extreme hikes, make sure you’ve got altitude sickness tablets to hand and do your research before setting off
