You will need to carry all of your personal gear for the 5 or 6 days that are spent in the Tatras. On account of this, we advise that you take a rucksack of around 40 litres capacity. Note that bedding including sheets is provided in the refuges and, therefore, a sleeping bag is not needed. The refuges all have hot showers but towels are not provided.
