-=== Introduction === +
- +
-Seatrekking is a sport that consists in exploring the shorelines of oceansseas, bays, lakes or rivers both above and below the water over the course of several days, without the aid of a boat or a watercraft. Seatrekking involves swimming, snorkeling, freediving and hiking, and combines all these disciplines into a distinctive form of travel and outdoor experience.[1][2] +

-=== Ethics === +
- +
-Seatrekking adheres to Leave No Trace principles and is committed to the conservation of natural environments and to minimising environmental impacts along the coastline.[3] +

-  * On land, the bag is carried as a normal backpack along hiking sections +
- +
-At sea, for swimming, snorkeling or freediving, further essential equipment includes: +
