List of the essentials to slip into your suitcase for good summer holidays in the AlpsAre you packing your suitcase without knowing what to bring with you for your holidays in the mountains? Don't panic; we have listed the essentials for you to bring for a great mountain vacation!
‘Mountain’, in the summer, usually means hiking, so remember to take good walking/hiking shoes so that you don't have sore feet and will not risk spraining your ankle during your walks.
Do not forget to take comfortable clothes for your activities and walks in the mountains. Comfort first!
Don't forget to slip into your suitcase, either, some warm clothes, because when you go up to altitude it can sometimes be quite cool. Evenings in the resort can also be quite cool; you won't regret having a little jacket on your shoulders!
Of course, do not forget to take a cap and sunscreen to avoid sunstroke or bad sunburn!
Finally, consider putting a raincoat in a small corner of your suitcase. In case of rain, you will be happy to have one, rather than getting wet or having to carry an umbrella.
