Autumn is a fantastic time for hiking. The leaves change color and the mountains appear so clear and close. The region of St. Anton on the Arlberg enchanted experienced mountain hikers as well as pure pleasure hikers with their extensive mountain scenery and about 300 kilometers of marked hiking trails.

Whether you are planning a short and leisurely hike or a more strenuous day trip, if you are in the mountains, equipment is important.

Which hiking equipment you need for a day tour, we have put together here. Depending on the length or weather, it may be that you also need something else or maybe even do without something.

The right hiking equipment

Hiking clothes

  • Softshell Jacket
  • Hard Shell Jacket
  • Fleece sweater / fleece jacket
  • functional shirt
  • Hiking pants – maybe Zipp-off hiking pants
  • Underwear
  • functional socks
  • walking boots

Now in the fall, you are well advised to choose a pair of hardshell pants, a hat and a rain cover for the backpack.

Always take with you

  • Provisions (bars, nuts, wholemeal bread and fruit)
  • Drinking bottle with water (at least 1.5 liters)
  • pocket knife
  • small garbage bag
  • headlamp
  • identification card
  • Cash
  • First aid kit
  • Map, compass
  • aufandeses mobile phone
  • headlamp
  • T-shirt for changing

When choosing and buying your hiking equipment, you should pay close attention to functionality and weight. A thin, functional fleece pullover is a lot warmer, more breathable and lighter than a traditional pullover.
