Does it get too hot sleeping in a sleeping bag during August in Europe?
- 4 responses so far
i did the ultimate european + egypt last year 23 Aug – 6 Oct and travelled the UK until early november so i knew i’d need a warm sleeping bag for the later part but what i did was buy a silk liner (i got mine at Kathmandu store) which scrunches down to barely nothing so when it was warm i used just the liner, then the sleeping bag when it was cooler.
hope this helps!
Hi Emma, heard you say you bought a liner, Im going in June and thought about just using the liner. Would you recommend that?
What sort of sleeping bag is provided by Contiki for the North American/Australian travelers? I’m trying to decide if I should bring a light blanket in case the sleeping bag is too thick for the non-AC accommodations.
It depends on the type of sleeping bags that you have, if its a summer one with a temp range is +0 or higher you will be fine but if your sleeping bags is a winter one with a temp range of -1 or less it may be to warm for the first part of your tour but as time goes on and it gets colder a winter one will come in handy.
