Lakes 3000s Challenge

So you've come this far... that means you're almost ready to book on to an INTO THE OUTSIDE Adventure Trek!

There are certain essentials you will need on the expedition to keep you warm, hydrated, full of energy and smiling.

INTO THE OUTSIDE's Balkan Adventure Treks are operated between May and September. The weather conditions can vary but mainly these months are dry and warm. They are either side of the main summer months. May can be a little cooler and September is usually a little warmer.

You will be trekking in warm and dry conditions so light but protective layers are essential. Long sleeve protective UV shirts are great to have and quick drying trekking pants are perfect. A good hat to keep the sun off of your face. A supportive 45 litre rucksack that can hold a hydration pack is essential as in some cases we may be 24 hours from a reliable water source.

A lightweight packable summer 2 season sleeping bag would be ideal combined with a lightweight Thermarest for the overnight part of the trek where we could be sleeping out under the stars. The huts will have good mattresses. A breathable bivi bag or survival bag to keep the wind chill off overnight if we do sleep out under that stars is perfect.

Good well worn in Summer trekking boots with good ankle support as we will come across steep ground and scree. Walking poles are great to have as back up even if you don't use them.

This list is only a guide but should tick some of the boxes.
