Top Hiking Tips for Couples

Do you know which part of the body is most important for the traveler? It's his legs! After all, our legs bring us to meet new impressions and unforgettable adventures. If we treat them casually, our entire "tourist life" will quickly end. And if you go hiking with your beloved (you can find her here:, you need to be twice as attentive and tidy. A joint hike is the best time to get closer and get to know each other better. This is a kind of meditation - during the campaign you do not think about anything annoying, but only about the world around. If you have the opportunity to share this magical moment with your loved one, be sure to use it.

Today we have prepared a small selection of tips on how to protect your legs during a hike and not spoil the impression of adventure. Use this information as a memo before every hiking campaign!

1. Choose the right shoes for the hike. It should be good trekking boots (or even mountain boots) for the appropriate categories of routes: for trekking you can take a softer and lower, even special sneakers, and for mountain hikes you need something more serious.

2. When buying shoes in the store try them on the socks in which you will travel. The longer you are in the store, the better it is: you need to walk for at least 5-10 minutes to understand that you really are comfortable with them.

Shoes must be worn, especially hard shoes. Let you look silly in the city in trekking boots, especially in summer, but this way you will really save your trip: your feet will get used to new shoes, and the chance to rub the calluses or knock down your legs will be much lower.

3. Choose the right socks, and try to walk in them before you start your adventure. In the last route, it was because of my socks that I almost rubbed myself a callus, but I managed to change them in time, and it was just a band-aid. Do not use cotton socks. Special socks for trekking remove moisture from the foot and support the thermal climate inside the boot.

4. Use at least two pairs of socks throughout the day, changing them: the legs should remain dry. Wet feet greatly increase the risk of calluses, as the skin of the legs becomes softer.

5. Properly lace up the shoes: do not overtighten the laces, squeezing the blood circulation, but do not let the shoes hang on the leg. The boot should fit tightly on the leg. This, first, reduces the friction between the legs and shoes and, as a consequence, the chance to earn corn during the campaign, and secondly, saves your ankle from injury, in case of incorrect placement of the foot. Especially often you start to stumble or tuck your foot at the end of the day, or descend from the top, for example, when fatigue begins to affect your attention.

6. Rest your feet. Even at short stops during the passage of the route, remove your shoes and socks, remove the insoles, allow your feet to cool and breathe. Well, at least untie your shoelaces.

7. Check the accessories for the shoelaces on the shoe: sometimes it can press on your feet or rub even through the boot material. At home, before the hike, you can bend or adjust the fittings with pliers, if you feel uncomfortable.

8. In the first appearance of signs of corn, glue on this place perforated patch, try to replace the sock, insole, if corn appears on the foot or heel, tighten, or, conversely, slightly disperse lacing.

9. If the callus continues to grow, use special plasters for calluses: with a soft pillow and a cut under the callus, or plasters "second skin". Personally, I want to recommend Compeed plaster company Johnson & Johnson.

10. You can not pierce the corn to avoid infection because a wet callus is, in fact, an open wound.

I hope that the information I have shared with you will help you get through the whole route according to the traffic schedule, and you will pay attention only to the delightful nature that will surround you.
