Hiking for all levels of difficulty and commitment. Simple flat tour of a few hours to do with the whole family, climbing to new heights with stunning postcard views, Nordic walking and snowshoeing trails.
These are just some of the possibilities that await hikers who are starting from the woods behind Bellagio and back up to Monte San Primo.
But first some useful advice on the equipment.
Waterproof windproof jacket. Lightweight but protective, cluttered little space when folded in the backpack. Best to avoid ponchos or raincoats, not transpiring at risk of turning into a real sauna. Furthermore, once worn, they are bulky and difficult to govern in the event of wind.
Long pants if you go into the woods (otherwise the legs would be full of scratches or irritation for any nettles), avoid jeans and velvet are heavy and if you wet it difficult to dry. In summer on the shorts.
Boots: better high, they protect the ankles. The important thing is that they have good soles and that they are waterproof (Gore-Tex is the ideal). In less demanding hiking boots are fine for trekking lower.
Backpack: capacity varies depending on the model. The important thing is that it has reinforced shoulder straps, which is suitable for the back and has straps to be tied at the waist. Rain cover useful in case of rain.
What are you waiting? and remember that "There is no good or bad weather, but good or bad equipment '
