Tourists know firsthand what unforeseen situations may arise during a trip. Therefore, when going on a hike of any distance, you need to take a tourist's first-aid kit with you. It should include all the necessary medicines and materials for first aid.
Recommendations for drawing up a tourist first aid kit:
You can also supplement the ready-made first-aid kit with some drugs, depending on the diseases that the participants of the hike have. And you should also take into account the age of tourists and the type of hike (to the mountains, forest, steppe, and so on).
Anything can happen on a hike, so you need to have a first aid kit with you, which contains all the drugs and they are of proper quality. To provide qualified medical care, it is necessary to properly assemble the first aid kit.
Let's look at some general requirements for a first aid kit:
The packaging of the first aid kit should also be given attention.
There are a number of requirements that a tourist's first-aid kit must meet:
Going downhill skiing or snowboarding? Don't forget your first aid kit! We will tell you what to put in your backpack and why to take a pencil and paper with you on the slope. Let's go!
Sunscreen should go first in the suitcase. You can get burned on the track in the same way as on the beach: the sun's rays reflected from the sea, even from the snow-white slope, can cause severe burns. Only the face is to be smeared, so a compact tube will be enough that will fit in a backpack pocket. Hygienic lipstick, which you will use to lubricate chapped lips, does not hurt either.
Falls on the slope are inevitable. To help bruises go away faster, take any anti-hematoma ointment with you.
A slight muscle strain and ligament injury is not yet a reason to end the ski season. An elastic bandage and ointments for bruises and sprains will help you return to the slope. And if you have already had injuries or are going to ride very actively, then neoprene calipers for knees and ankles will not interfere.
Another necessary remedy for winter sports is a warming ointment: it is used before skiing - to improve blood circulation, as well as during - if a person is freezing and to restore muscle tone after exertion.
We have listed funds that will come in handy at the ski resort. However, you should carry your regular traveller's first aid kit with you. What does it include?
Unfamiliar food, and even not always prepared with the clean hands of spa chefs, presents surprises, and therefore we take remedies for constipation and diarrhea, as well as pills for stomach infections.
No one is insured against common colds and flu at the resort, a proven medicine that will help to quickly bring down the temperature and say goodbye to a runny nose will not be superfluous.
Skyscanner has compiled a minimum first aid kit, which includes everything you need and does not take up much space in your luggage. Learn about all the intricacies of collecting a travel first-aid kit at sea and on any other vacation and keep in mind a list of medicines that you should always have with you.
A first aid kit on the road is akin to insurance: you hope it won't come in handy, but you take it anyway. And then you take it home unpacked. For those who are not ready to carry half a suitcase of medicines, but also do not want to run around pharmacies on vacation, we have compiled a basic first-aid kit for one person for two to three weeks. Especially for the economical ones - Russian analogues of medicines: they contain the same active ingredient, but are much cheaper.

I have always dreamed of becoming a doctor. Perhaps my dreams of medicine were reflected in my mountain first aid kit with a wide range of uses. She has helped both me and my fellow climbers and hikes more than once. On a number of travels, I was even proudly called the “expedition doctor”. Therefore, I was always accompanied by that same mountain first-aid kit.
Let me explain right away, there will be nothing about a high-mountain first-aid kit here. My mountain first aid kit is such a first aid kit with which I go to the local mountains, not very distant/high. Days for 1-12, in the company of 1-30 potential patients. By the way, according to my personal survey, 80% of applicants for treatment do not have their own first aid kit.
Although a mountain first-aid kit is supposed to be a red bag, drawer, bag (underline the necessary) with a white plus, my first-aid kit is a large gray cosmetic bag. It looks like I'm wearing makeup with me to the mountains. But this cosmetic bag (in theory, it was designed for storing probes) has a bunch of convenient features.
1 - it has handles and can be carried by them. 2 - it is square and flat. It can be put into the backpack from above, or you can push it to the back or sideways if there is an empty space. 3 - there are many mesh pockets in it, through which you can evenly spread everything out, and because of which you can immediately see and understand what is in the first-aid kit.
There are some first aid kits in which you just heap all your medicines. Because there is only one branch. Well, or one compartment plus a small pocket. And when you need to find something, for example, on the road, in the rain, for example, in the slush, in order to find something in such a first-aid kit, you probably need to dump the contents out of it, maybe even right into this slush and under this rain.
The downside of my first aid kit is that it leaks water. Once in the rain, I put it in the corner of the tent, into which water flowed at night. The first-aid kit was drowned, medicines too. When I bought them again, it turned out that the contents of the first aid kit were worth a fortune. Therefore, after that incident, I always keep it wrapped in a bag.
I admired the Oriflame cosmetic bag, now there are medicines. There are a lot of them, like for almost all occasions.

Russian tourism, even before the start of the pandemic, was in a protracted crisis: the industry was sharpened to export tourist money from the country. The current situation threatens the tourism business with unprecedented losses, but at the same time creates motivation to start a systematic way out of the crisis, says the vice president of Opora Rossii, head of the tourism committee Alexei Kozhevnikov
