Excursionists, mountaineers, and climbers know the advantages of light-weight and space-saving material. Because even the fittest excursionist will become quickly tired with the wrong material.

For hikers

The most important things for a successful hiking tour are the hiking boots: they must not be too small. We also recommend hiking poles for a rhythmic movement sequence and for relieving the joints when descending. Last but not least: the perfect backpack. The content of the backpack should be arranged equally. Snacks and a water bottle should always be at hand.

As many meters have to mastered on this challenging tour, a night at Similaun hut at 3,019 m is recommended.

For alpine tours

In your backpack, there must also be crampons, an ice axe and a rope if you will need it. Warm clothes and enough water. Excellent waterproof hiking boots allowing you to put on crampons too are a must during each alpine tour. Hiking poles will facilitate both ascent and descent.

For climbers

A harness and rope are elementary- The length of the single ropes varies, but should be 60 meters. In fact, most of the routes in South Tyrol’s climbing parks are from 25 to 30 m high. For the belay of your partner, you will need belaying devices and intermediate fixing devices. Your climbing shoes should be rather tight and must have an excellent sole.
