Equipment List

The Hornstrandir nature reserve is a popular hiking destination. The area can be difficult to pass, days can go by without travellers meeting other people and the weather can change very suddenly and without a warning, it can be really good but also really bad. Therefore it is necessary for everyone that plans to hike in the nature reserve to be well prepared. We have compiled a list of equipment that we recommend hikers to bring with them.
