Three hiking tips for late summer and autumn
Narrow, well-beaten tracks leading across meadows and through forests, winding climbs that challenge us and the summit bliss that rewards us: hiking is definitely one of our favourite hobbies. And that doesn’t come as a big surprise - with all the peaks reaching into the sky around Zell am See-Kaprun, the choice of new hiking routes is (almost) inexhaustible. It can be quite difficult to decide on a destination! That's why we have selected three of our favourite hiking routes for you: On the Kitzsteinhorn, on the Schmittenhöhe and to the Schwalbenwand – the height of delight. Let's go!
Speaking of clothes – they must be able to fulfil many functions when hiking. They have to be comfortable and breathable, dry quickly and, best of all, look good! That's why we chose these items from Peak Performance:
The lightweight Vislight jacket for women is perfect for mountain tours, because the Gore-Tex Active functional material is breathable on the one hand, but also protects you from moisture at the same time. It is also super light and fits in any rucksack. A favourite jacket like this is of course also available for men: it can be worn for mountaineering as well as for skiing or ski touring!
Underneath, we wear this alum shirt made of recycled polyester with mesh insert on the back. It is breathable and, thanks to the gentle, waterless CO2 dyeing process, also pleasant on the skin. As with the jacket, this practical sports companion is also available for men.
Our (hiking) trousers for all occasions are the Stretch Trek Shorts for men and women: they have a slim cut and score with a high stretch content. Practical when we have to climb over boulders again and need a lot of freedom of movement! The windproof, quick-drying softshell material keeps us warm and dry even at dizzy heights.
WELL EQUIPPED, YOU ARE NOW READY TO CONQUER THE MOUNTAINS AROUND ZELL AM SEE-KAPRUN. WE WISH YOU LOTS OF FUN!
