- swimwear (the chalet has a swimming pool, sauna and hot tub!)
- sun hat
- hiking boots
- fast-drying outdoor trousers
- outdoor shirt
- fleece/warm 2nd layer
- wind and waterproof outdoor jacket
- a rucksack (about 20 ltr)
- a min 1ltr camelbag/thermos/plastic bottle (for hike)
- earplugs (for refuge stay)
- a (lightweight outdoor) towel
- a head torch (if you have one)
- plug adaptor if required (EU)
At Alptitude we aim for moments of quiet and reflection, and moments of adventure in the wild.
