The first step towards responsible tourism.
There are so many types of paths that everyone can try their hand at Trekking. Just choose a path suitable for your physical condition and equip yourself with suitable shoes and clothing to walk easily and safely along the mountain trails.
Trekking is much more than a sport: it is a lifestyle, a new way of experiencing the area and an innovative form of tourism. With its slow walking, it allows you to rediscover nature and its beauty.
Trekking is a sport suitable for everyone: by choosing the path that best suits your athletic training, everyone can practice it. Furthermore, it is a form of responsible and sustainable tourism that gives the concept of walking a whole new meaning. It allows you to reconcile with yourself, gives psychophysical benefits and it’s a unique contact opportunity with the planet.
Trekking can be itinerant or residential: with the first one you walk every day in a new place, staying overnight in different structures; with the second one you stay in a single structure and you dedicate yourself to more or less demanding walks during the day. What does not change is that the trekker always perceives himself as a guest of nature, who loses the sense of time and sees his self-esteem improve.
The Zinermann stores in Livigno offer a wide selection of shoes and clothing for trekking to practice this discipline in total safety and in complete comfort.
The perfect trekking shoe depends on the type of terrain you are going to tackle: simple paths require flexible and light shoes, technical terrain requires a rigid (synonymous with stability) and high shoe (for ankle support). If waterproofed, the shoe will protect the foot from moisture.

To choose the right trekking clothing you need to consider the season (although the rule of dressing in layers is always needed). The best jackets have a waterproof outer layer and a detachable inner jacket, the undershirt can be technical or merino wool, t-shirts, sweaters and trousers will depend on the climate and the type of trekking you are going to face.

Backpacks and sticks
Trekking (or hiking) backpacks are essential to carry everything you need, especially if you plan to go on long trips. Only a specialist will be able to recommend the best model for your needs and your build and he will also be able to suggest the most suitable sticks for your body and preparation.
