Packing to Go on Tour

When you are packing for your standard vacation to the beach or similar, you likely pack as much as you like or can afford (with large extra baggage fees being charged by airlines these days).

However, when it comes to the adventure a tour provides, packing as much as you like isn’t a luxury you have. And with good reason – you will need to carry around with you everything which you pack. If you are at a loss as to what to pack and what to leave behind, this post has the guidance you are looking for.


Let’s start at the bottom with your shoes. If you are going to be doing a lot of walking, then pack just one pair of good running/walking shoes.

Moving up to your pants, it’s important to remember the activities you will be doing. You won’t be attending weddings, court (hopefully), or lush private functions. No, instead, you will be traipsing through the jungle, the desert, or even a dirty downtown street.

For these tasks, you need only pack two pairs of pants. Choose one pair which provides good air circulation and are potentially waterproof which you can use as your primary walking pants. You can easily wash or rinse these each night as you stop at each destination.

The second pair should be a pair of jeans or regular pants which you would wear out when you saw your friends to go to the movies or out to lunch. Keeping in mind the conditions you will likely be in, keep your pants on the casual side of things.


Moving up to your torso, plain t-shirts and blouses are going to be your best bet. Pack one t-shirt for every two days which you are travelling. While this can seem like to little, remember that you can do small amounts of laundry as you travel.

When packing your t-shirts, be mindful of any logos or prints which they have on them as they could cause offence to residents of the countries you are visiting.


Hat! Hat! Hat! If you didn’t read that, the word is HAT! There are two reasons for packing a hat with you for your tour. The first, and most obvious, is to protect you from the sun, or any other elements which fall down on you. The second reason is to keep your hair out of your face and to prevent you from worrying about it. The last thing that you want to do when on an adventure tour is worry about how you look.

Taking an adventure tour is a great way to see the world and experience things which you never thought you would have. If you are preparing to join a tour, keep these items in mind when packing your bag and prepare for an awesome and safe adventure!
