Congratulations! You’ve decided to take a break and see nature the way it was meant to be seen—outside of a backlit screen. It may seem intimidating to exchange your work bag for hiking boots and a backpack, but we’ve got you covered with some basic tips to help you prepare for an adventure of a lifetime.
Whether you’re planning a several day intensive trek or a beginner’s mountaineering adventure, the first steps to preparing for your trip is to increase your endurance and aerobic capacity. On the expedition, your days will consist of constant movement, usually with some additional weight on your back through changing inclines. This will vary drastically from your typical daily routine when you only carried your laptop bag on your back.
