Equipment for hiking in Romania for spring, summer and autumn

A good equipment contributes to the success of a hike, along with the sights, weather, and of course, the people you meet along the journey.

The required equipment for a hike in the mountains, in Romania, is:

  • backpack (a light one, like 20 l, for a day trip; a 40 l for a 2 day trip; a 50 l plus, for a multi day tour)
  • good hiking boots, with VIBRAM sole and Gore Tex membrane if possible (other membrane would do as well); boots with a very good grip basically
  • good mountain pants, waterproof. For winter time you need special winter pants and also thermals
  • fleece, wind stopper
  • good mountain socks; the ones made from wool are very good during the cold nights
  • waterproof and windproof jacket. On the top of the mountain it could get chilly and windy
  • something to cover your head (even in the summer, temperatures could drop down quickly)
  • sun block and sun glasses
  • gloves (even in the summertime, if you go to high mountains above 2000 m, gloves are a must have)
  • hiking sticks (they help a lot, especially if you have bad knees)
