guided hiking and self-guided walking tours in bulgaria
 

The checklist below is provided to help hikers doing a self-guided trek for the first-time on their own. Although it might be not precise in detail it still covers a sufficient amount of necessities that should be brought along on a normal inn-to-inn walking holiday (snow conditions and extreme hiking tours not taken into consideration though). Most suppliers of unguided treks and mountainous hut-to-hut walks provide equipment checklist when sending the necessary information for each trek. However in case you find yourself without such pre-departure information and still not sure what to take with you, you can send this checklist to your agent and ask him to tick what would be necessary for your particular vacation.
Remember that you hike without a guide in unknown areas and any shortage or absence of certain items could expose you on a serious danger. Walk prepared and you will enjoy your holiday!
