How to Pack for Your trip?


The Ultimate Packing List for Active Travelers

Whether you are looking to reach an isolated beach accessible only by boat, enjoy an early run along the cliffs or bike ride along ancient trails that stitch together a network of medieval villages, we have curated the ultimate packing list for active lifestyle travelers looking to experience one of our small group tours inside Puglia & Basilicata, Sicily and Portugal.


Active Gear

2 Cycling jerseys or athletic shirts
2 Pair Cycling shorts
Cycling shoes (if you bring your own pedals)
Supportive & Comfortable Walking/Hiking Shoes Athletic socks
Arm/leg warmers
Lightweight, waterproof, wind-resistant jacket or vest
Bike gloves

Do I Need to Bring Special Cycling Gear?

Cycling shorts are designed to provide extra padding when spending the whole day in the saddle. You’ll be glad to have them.

If you bring your own cycling shoes, you must bring your own pedals. If you’ve never used clip-in pedals before, we don’t recommend using them on tour.

Arm and leg warmers are essential for cooler weather. Wear them with your short-sleeve jersey and shorts for lightweight, easy-to-pack, and effective warmth.

Bike gloves are a preference. The padding in gloves can ease arm, shoulder, and joint fatigue and prevent blistering. 


Off the Bike

Walking shoes
Hiking shoes (if required)
Long and short-sleeved shirts
Sweater/jacket for evenings
Dinner attire (dressy casual) + dress shoes

Dressing for the Weather

The location and time of year of your tour can bring all kinds of weather, from extreme heat to relentless rain. Check extended forecasts before your trip and pack accordingly.
