What to take on the Walk

Useful and practical information for setting off on a pilgrimage on foot

We advise you:

Not to weigh down your backpack with superfluous objects. As well as weighing less, you will also learn how to live with the bare necessities. Always remember that you are the person who will be carrying the backpack. The ideal weight is 7/8 kg; the baggage should never weigh more than 10 or maximum 12 kilogrammes. For people of slight build, these weights should obviously be decreased.

Before setting off on your walk, make sure that you have enough food to last throughout the day. Light, nourishing foods are recommended, to avoid feeling too full.
First and foremost, remember to put a supply of water in your backpack. In the summer, water consumption is much higher and it is essential to replace the amount of water that the body loses through sweating as quickly as possible.

The choice of shoes is fundamental: lightweight ankle boots, with a good, contoured soles are ideal. Remember never to set off wearing a new pair of shoes, but always use boots that have already taken on the shape of your foot.

In the July-August period, set off by 7:30 am, to avoid travelling along the most demanding stretches in the heat.
