The best clothing for excursions, trekking, and canyoning

When the beaches get crowded, the sea is full of boats and the hot night attracts mosquitoes and insomnia, some would kill to escape to the mountains! It also coincides with this precise time of the year in which we no longer feel like practicing outdoor sports in the city, as much as we like our urban environment and although we are equipped with the most perfect outfit (basically this one for running, cycling or outdoor gym). Luckily for us, these cravings for other types of more wild and unpredictable physical activity can always be satisfied in the Mediterranean basin and today we are making it easy for you.

Next, we have highlighted for you 2 dream spots - Portofino on the Italian Riviera and the Gorges du Verdon in French Provence - where you can practice 3 exciting adventure sports wearing an unstoppable look with clothes for an excursion in the mountains, clothing for trekking, or clothing for canyoning.


1-    Do you feel like going on an excursion?

Then the majestic promontory of Portofino, with its fishing villages and jaw-dropping views, should be YOUR place this summer! With the best clothes for excursions in your suitcase, you can go through it enjoying every moment to the fullest.

We recommend this ultra-light jacket; it comes with several very comfortable pockets and is waterproof, breathable, and windproof. It also protects you both day and night thanks to neon details and reflective inserts.

It will be perfect with these pants for excursions in a water-repellent and windproof fabric that can be transformed into Bermuda shorts, and this short-sleeved T-shirt, very pleasant to the touch, anti-bacterial, and anti-UV.

Finally, always closing your hiker look with technicality and style, you can opt for these shoes that protect the foot from impacts, provide optimal grip on slippery surfaces and dry quickly.


2-    Are you looking for an unforgettable trek?

Well, you can also challenge yourself on the same Portofino peninsula! Rocky and steep, it has a multitude of trails and villages to discover on foot.

Take this avant-garde jacket with graphene padding and high thermal properties or this other lightweight and versatile technical jacket, wind and waterproof. It is better safe than sorry, so they will be your best allies for when it cools down at dusk.

Any of these trekking jackets will combine wonderfully with this comfortable short-sleeved, crew-neck t-shirt 100% GOTS (Glo-bal Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton. And although there are several options for trekking pants, this season we recommend light shorts that are easy to maintain, waterproof and windproof.


3-    Do you dare to practice canyoning?

Walking between spectacular limestone cliffs and blue waters, climbing crazy rocks, jumping into pools of water and among various natural obstacles… this is what awaits you in the Gorges del Verdon! But to attack this canyon in the south of France, one of the most impressive in the world and the second deepest in Europe, you have to go with everything, including adequate equipment.

Good attire starts with a helmet like this, of the highest quality and design, and highly protective sunglasses like these polarized glasses with mirrored lenses. They offer a clear view whatever the weather conditions, the rubber temples absorb shocks and the perforated end allows you to attach a lanyard and not lose them.

Then to maintain your body temperature, there is nothing better than a wetsuit for canyoning, warm, technical and aerodynamic, with a minimum thickness of 4-5mm. You can choose a suit like this that provides comfort and freedom of movement or a sweater with hidden seams and sealed inside that limit infiltration as much as possible.


Change perspective now and get ready to live new experiences along the way.

With these clothing items for an excursion, clothing for trekking, and clothing for canyoning, you just need to follow your desire and test your adventurous talent!
