When you sign up for one of our trips, we will send you a detailed packing list according to the type of trip you are taking and the time of year.
As a general rule, remember that Asturias has a somewhat unpredictable climate, with a tendency for rainy and humid days. The green of the landscapes has a cause! However, the months we operate group trips (May, June, and September) are meteorologically stable (although we say that with a small mouth).
To prepare for everything from hot and sunny days to cold, rain, fog, or wind, the best strategy is to dress in layers: a thermal base layer, followed by a fleece jacket to keep you warm and a final waterproof/windproof/rainproof layer to protect you from the elements (hopefully you won’t have to wear it, but you should always carry it in your attack pack).
You will also need comfortable hiking pants (not jeans!), thermal tights, a hat, sunglasses, underwear, and several pairs of hiking socks (look for socks without seams to avoid chafing and possible blisters).
On horseback, it is essential to wear comfortable long pants. If you tend to chafe in your legs, applying some vaseline cream before the route is advisable.
On the canoeing day, you will need a swimsuit and river shoes (preferably adjustable). Optionally you can wear a lycra t-shirt.
On the surfing day, our guides will provide all the necessary equipment: wetsuits, boards, and lycra.
