GUIDE: How to prepare and organize a group-hiking route?

Eating and staying hydrated on summer routes

Now that temperature is increasing – at levels that may be considered historical records- we must pay special attention to two main aspects if we go hiking.  These are food and hydration.

Of course we all agree that going for a walk should be a pleasant and fun experience.  But it must be taken into account that, as we walk, we will find ourselves in areas where there is little or no human presence… and, therefore, getting help will be tricky at least.

Then, we must ensure that our body has enough energy and electrolytes to reach our destiny.  So from Walkaholic we give you several tips on this subject.

Food and hydration in the summer

This is especially important in summer.  As the temperature rises, our body increases perspiration to keep us cool.  In return, when we sweat, we lose water and salts by evaporation as result.
