Santa Rita Waterfall - Salento

For high mountain Hiking:

As the track might be wet and muddy Waterproof boots are highly recommended, Walking gaiters are also very handy during the trip, walking socks.

For Village Walks:

Runners or any light footwear is recommended.

Upper body:

  • You will need a windproof, breakable jacket and a medium jacket full of down or synthetic fill is recommended.
  • Pants should be waterproof or any material which dries easily.
  • Thermal clothes are highly recommended especially at night time.

For your hands:
Try wearing lightweight or midweight fleece gloves under waterproof shell mittens or shell gloves. It’s also a good idea to bring an extra pair of fleece gloves that you keep stowed in your pack in case the ones you’re wearing get wet.

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.

We take full payment at time of booking.
