Practical information on last-minute forest holidays

Since last-minute forest holidays involve plenty of time spent in the great outdoors, bringing along maps, a compass, and a guidebook is a good idea. You will also want a high-quality pair of walking shoes, swimwear and rain gear. Seasonal clothing that is functional for the types of outdoor activities you are planning is also important. If you intend to go out for some local dining and nightlife in the region you visit, it is also a good idea to bring along any additional clothing you require.

What budget to plan

Given that last-minute holidays imply that you did not have as much time to plan as you might usually spend, it is recommended that you bring along some extra spending money to be prepared for any additional costs you may encounter during your travels.
