Packing Lists

Below are our bike tour and hiking tour recommendations for your packing, depending on what kind of a trip you are booked for.  Overall, we really encourage you to pack light and find ways of using clothing that is ‘multi-purpose’ and multi-functional.  Shoes that can do double duty and pants/tops that can do double duty.  It sounds hard but if you can manage with carry-on rollerboard plus 1 handbag, you may really appreciate not having to worry about lost luggage!
