On a hut-to-hut trek, you don't just take anything with you. Every ounce you put in your bag, you also carry on your back. Fantastic, trekking through the Alps for a few days, but those jeans you're lugging along unused have no use for it and neither do you. At the same time, you won't necessarily find an unused toothbrush in a mountain hut at 2,000 metres. As you can see, a packing list for your hut-to-hut trip is useful. This may not be the first packing list you find, but it is definitely the last. Download our free PDF packing list and pack your bag with the help of our trekking experts.
You don't walk from hut to hut without a backpack, in your jeans or on your trainers. On a day hike, you don't have to be so strict, but when you're on the trail for several days and sharing accommodation at 2,000 metres with other hikers, you want to be well prepared. A safe, enjoyable hut-to-hut tour starts with your gear. You can ignore the people around you and leave the food in the huts, but your gear, you always have it with you at all times. So it is good when it is complete.
