  • 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)


What's included


Your fee covers all early morning activities (such as yoga and pilates), the full-day guided hike, refuge stay and one other activity (ropes course, white water rafting or rock climbing but not via ferrata). Any other activity must be paid for in Euros directly to the supplier.

3 meals a day are included and wine will be supplied with evening meals.

You're more than welcome to stock up on beers or wine from the Supermarket and store these in the fridge in your apartment, as well as bottled water, fruit and snacks.
