Doing the whole route from start to finish, camping
This option is for the very experienced pilgrims who have gone on longer hikes and who have the equipment and the skills for camping and outdoor cooking.
Outfit. Your choice of clothes and shoes should be dictated by the weather and your comfort. For a one-day trip you won't need anything special – just what you would wear for a walk in the nearest park. But do not forget that any new footwear needs some breaking-in before you can really trust your feet to it! It is important to break in any new shoes beforehand, and a spare pair of shoes can come in handy. Take some lighter and some warmer clothing for weather fluctuations. Dress in layers! In addition to the previous list you will need something comfortable and warm, like thermal underwear, for the chilly nights in a tent.
Gear. Here you will need a real hiking backpack with wide shoulder straps and a belt. Pack a tent, a sleeping mat, a sleeping bag. Recommended campsites can be found here. A part of the route is located in a nature conservation zone where starting a fire is not allowed. Thus a gas stove burner is essential.
Also take an ID, some cash, a mosquito and tick repellent, water, food, a rain jacket, toiletries, a first aid kit and a spare pair of socks, and some warm clothes. Some plaster and peroxide are essential in case your shoes start hurting your feet or you get blisters (but let's hope you will never need them).
