Salento Hikers provides insurance for all activities however we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you take out your own medical/travel insurance to cover your walk and any circumstances in which you may not be able to walk.
To enjoy your walk you should be able to carry a medium sized backpack for 5 to 7 hours over 10-21km of mountain track each day. To maximise your enjoyment we encourage you to set your own pace while walking the track. The track surface varies from smooth well-formed paths to rough terrain broken up by rocks and tree roots and we recommend you wear hiking boots, which provide firm ankle support. If you are not a regular walker, we suggest you begin a daily walk regime 6-8 weeks before your departure. Some practice carrying a pack and hill/staircase walking during this time will make you even better prepared for your walk.
The unpredictable nature of the weather in this region means that high winds and
rain can occur at any time of the year. It is therefore very important to be prepared for the worst weather conditions, and carry the appropriate clothing at all times.
Please advise us of any specific dietary requirements when you make your booking. We will endeavour to cater for them, however please remember we operate in an extremely isolated and challenging environment.
