These long and exhausting tours are recommended only for tourists with some experience and preparation. At first, the body is not accustomed to this stress and recognizes it as such.

Choose short walks in your area and see if it really is the best option for you. At first 5 to 10 kilometers is enough. The net walking time is two to three hours.

2. Meals and drinks during the walk
