Tips Prepare Yourself for a Hiking Tour

Book in Advance

Some tour companies that offer hiking tours are small, so the openings on their tours usually quickly fill up. If you want to take a tour that they offer, call or use their online booking system to reserve your spot in a tour in advance.

Many tours offer three to four hour hikes, which if you are not used to it, can be strenuous. Allow yourself time to prepare for one of the Copper Canyon day tours, which involves walking in the forest and canyon, with these tips.

Go on Daily Walks

The best way to prepare for one of the Copper Canyon tours is to go on walks every day. Start out by taking a short walk in the morning or the evening and gradually extend the distance. When you first begin a walking regimen, allow your body to rest every other day, but as the tour nears, walk every day to prepare for it.

Vary Daily Walks

When you take your daily walk, don’t just stick to one type of surface. Instead, walk on pavement, then choose to walk on gravel or on dirt trails to get your body adjusted to the different surfaces that you may come across during one of the Copper Canyon day tours. Your body will need to learn how to adjust to the different surfaces that you might come across during a hiking tour.

Purchase Appropriate Footwear

You will need to wear a good pair of shoes when you take a hiking tour to protect your feet, knees and back. Buy a pair that is suited for the type of hiking that you will do. If you are walking around a city, then purchase shoes that are meant for walking on pavement, but if you are hiking in the wilderness, then choose a pair designed for uneven terrain and that will protect your ankles.

Add Cardio to Routine

Your legs are not the only parts of your body that will need to get used to the distances you will walk on one of the Copper Canyon tours, but your heart and lungs will get a workout as well. Prepare them by adding other cardiovascular exercises to your workout regimen. Add running, cycling or swimming to your exercise routine to get in shape so you can fully enjoy your hiking tour.
