My husband and I are working on section hiking the GR5, a long-distance trail that goes from Rotterdam to Nice.
We are going for two weeks with our 1.5-year-old daughter. I will be carrying her in the baby backpack...plus my water and something light and not dense, like diapers, my husband will be carrying everything else.
The trip involves 6 nights of either tent camping or staying in refuges (dormitory-style, no private rooms). We will be eating at the refuges so we don't need to carry as much food, and can dispose of dirty diapers :-) The rest of the nights we are staying in hotels (yes, I know hiking in Europe is cushy).
Any input on the decision to bring along our tent and sleeping bags or to stay in refuges? Other tips for trekking with a toddler would also be appreciated!
