Via Alpina #1 - what to pack

This summer I was hiking on the Via Alpina. It's a long distance trail in the alps and I chose to hike the section which leads through Switzerland from east to west.

I hadn't done a long distance hike for quite some time, so I was really unsure what to pack. I was searching online a lot and I decided to share my complete packing list with you here – take it, print it, adjust it ... and go hiking! (There is a download link at the end of this article!)

 

(Attention: This list is intended as a guideline. I cannot take any responsibility for the totality of the content. Please re-check for your personal needs!)

 

I have linked some of the products for you that I use. These are all affiliate links. (More about affiliate links and ads on this blog.)
