Backpacking can be any combination of hiking, camping, climbing, snowshoeing or cross country skiing. It includes carrying a pack on your back while moving yourself to a destination under your own power and staying overnight in the outdoors with or without a tent. Backpackers must be able to carry a substantial weight on their backs for long periods of time, particularly if hiking to more remote locations. Backpacking is for outdoor enthusiasts who want to extend their time in the outdoors. Pull on your boots, get some exercise, and look forward to sleeping out in the night air!
Backpacking for 30 minutes burns approximately 238 calories.
