Getting out into the open air and discovering what wilderness travel has to offer can be less expensive than you think. Walking is by far the cheapest option for any type of adventure into the wilderness, your feet are free so you just need to locate some good walking boots and you’re set to go. ‘Der Berg ruft’ (the mountain calls) is what the Austrians say, and they live to be outdoors.
There are plenty of locations to experience the wilderness environment, you donâ€™t have to fly to the Himalayas to have a great time, and your local forest can often provide all the adventure you need. Itâ€™s best to check first that they will allow you to camp and cook using a naked flame, just to be safe, but if you are sensible you should have no problems. Get some local maps and find areas around you that are densely green or coastal, away from major roads and housing. Select walking routes of around 7-10 miles, this will be perfect for a beginner walk. A great way to plan your walk, if you are a beginner is to find local pubs along the route to call into. You can even book a Bed and Breakfast to finish your trip or on a tighter budget book into a local campsite.
The basic equipment you will need is:
1) Backpack to store you belongings. You can take ground sheets and all your food in here. 2) Torch. There are many types on the market and this battery torch is simple and easy to use, requires no flames so safe to use for all ages. 3) Tent. This can be purchased for as little as ÂŁ25 for a basic 2-man type. 4) Sleeping bag. This is a must for any adventure, you never know what the weather will do. 5) Food. You have to be sensible here, donâ€™t pack heavy cans, as you will be carrying them on your back. Pack light and minimal, pasta, dried fruit, and soups are a great choice.
No matter what location you decide to go to, wilderness travel can be whatever you make it. Have fun and ensure you stay safe.
