Staying Fit For Hiking
Travellers need to stay fit, especially for hiking which often means getting used to different altitudes from where you live. Preparation is vital and could save your life!
Eating Well When You Travel
Energy bars and protein are useful to carry when you are travelling especially for people planning to go hiking or participating in sports.
Choose foods that give you energy and keep your levels up for extended periods so you have the stamina to get you through the day.
Hydration is very important, especially in hot climates, so always carry water with you when you are hiking or don’t have access to fresh drinking water. Remember water in some countries can be contaminated so check before you drink. Bottled water is always the safest choice when in doubt.
