Health and vaccinationsContact a vaccination centre in time before your departure (some vaccinations need to be taken a month before)
On most of our tours you do not need to take any vaccinations. This based on the presumption that you have the normal basic protection.
- Hepatitis. Twinrix gives good protection against hepatitis A and B.
- Tetanus and diphteria. Most Scandinavians get this at early age.
Suggestion to a backpack pharmacy:
- Pain killers (e.g. paracetamol, ibuprofen)
- Dimor, Imodium, Lopex, Pepto (temporarily against diarrhea)
- Mosquito repellent
When it comes to food and beverage there are some general guide lines that help you prevent gastric disorders: Eat newly prepared food, peel all fruit and be cautious with fresh vegetables and ice cream. Use common sense when choosing places to eat, small local restaurants with a lot of commerce are to be preferred, rather than fancy restaurants with a western menue. Drink bottled or boiled beverages only. Avoid ice, since it can, and most likely is made of tap water. Remember to consume enough fluids when it is hot.
