Camping gear

Tent – You should always choose a good quality tent if you intend camping along the Way, it should be able to withstand heavy rain and wet, windy conditions.

Sleeping Bag – A three-season bag will cope with most conditions you will meet on the Way although a lighter one may suffice in warmer weather. If staying at hostels or bunkhouses, you may be able hire bedding on a daily basis.

Cooking equipment – Various types of stove are available using different fuels but the most convenient is probably the camping-gas variety. Make sure you carry a spare cylinder of gas, although replacement cylinders will be available en-route. For cooking, pack a knife, fork and spoon and a set of pans which can double as plates or bowls.
