Although the high mountains always reserve this experience, in the winter months to the regular pleasure of hiking is added the possibility to enjoy the snow. This natural show reinforces in many cases the beauty of the sites that we walk. But, together with beauty comes a plus in danger.
Snowshoeing has special requirements that each lover of this sport must take into account at the time to select the equipment that you need to take with you. Furthermore, in winter snow is supposed to be an additional challenge, so it should be taken some precautions to prevent that a day of entertaining becomes a tragedy.
So, from Walkaholic we advise you not only what you should take with you if there was a snowfall or if you will face a high mountain, but also we give you some tips to secure your safety.

Photography and hiking almost always come out to walk together, as is easier to show a photo than to tell –actually revive- a nature experience with words. These pictures remind us how much we enjoyed to go hiking and are useful to keep in mind the sites we have visited: if we don´t take them properly, will end up being unattractive and poor quality images.
We just need a mobile or an economical digital camera to get breath-taking photos. Still it is important to take into account that photography is a very complex world, but with practice and good tips anyone can make of his hiking experience a good photo album. So now Walkaholic invites you to get the best of your camera or smartphone, portraying beautiful landscapes and taking spectacular night pictures, as a true professional.
Including the provinces of Barcelona, Lleida, Girona and Tarragona, Catalonia is one of the Spanish regions that have spectacular natural landscapes, very suitable for hiking.
For you to enjoy them fully, from Walkaholic we discuss the more we like. All of them can be browsed by using our mobile application, which will be your true companion on the route and give you useful advices before and during your trip.

Hiking is a demanding activity from the physical point of view, but fun for who love to be in direct contact with nature.
You must take into account that, for a short walk, we don´t need any preparation more than comfortable shoes. However, if we want to go to a higher level and practice trekking (longer and complicated routes) or mountain (including climbing), we need some items essential for hiking.
To have it or not, will mark the level of satisfaction of our experience. So from Walkaholic we invite you to you review our check list before throwing yourself to the adventure.
