Maybe you enjoy the thrill of great heights, perhaps it’s the spectacular views, or even the challenge of an arduous hike? Whatever the reason for your love of walking, Europe offers fantastic opportunities to enjoy the fresh air and a change of scenery, while striding out into the countryside.

But don't even thinking about heading for the hills this summer without the right kit, as trekking in the wrong shoes, while wearing unsuitable clothing, will definitely spoil your comfort, not to mention putting you at greater risk of injury.

HuffPost UK LIfestyle has teamed up with Jack Wolfskin to bring you the essential list of what to take on your trekking holiday so that you’re prepared for every eventuality and feel comfortable at all times.

Whether you’re heading for the glaciers of Iceland, fjords of Norway or the mountain passes of Switzerland, Jack Wolfskin’s NANUK fleeces are a staple piece of kit.

Likewise a sturdy pair of hiking boots, which are waterproof yet breathable, are crucial to a happy hike.

If wild camping’s your thing, then consider purchasing a dome, tunnel tent, and even lightweight down sleeping bag. And to carry your gear, Jack Wolfskin’s award-winning Mountaineer 30 could be just the job.

Here are our top 10 trekking spots in Europe. See if your favourites are included on the list. If not, let us know in the comments below..
