Tramping Tips

  • You will be walking all day with a heavy pack so be comfortable.  Tramping Boots and Tramping socks can make a big difference.
  • Aim to drink and snack as you walk.  Allow yourself 15-20 min  break for lunch but no more.  Avoid stopping for long periods because it will make your legs feel achy and more often than not you will get cold.
  • Set yourself small goals throughout the day.  eg Aim to rest at the top of a hill as a reward for your effort
  • Tramping is not a race!  You should set a steady pace which you can maintain for the day.  Never run!  
  • Take turns to lead the group and navigate.  Check everyone in the group is ok on a regular basis
  • Take in the amazing scenery and enjoy the challenge!
