Choose itineraries that suit your physical and technical abilities. Collect information about the area you are visiting. Get detailed topographical maps. When in a group, take account of the slowest walker in reckoning tour times.
Wear clothes and take equipment that suit the difficulty and length of your tour. Keep emergency gear in your rucksack, including first aid supplies.
Don’t go walking alone in the mountains. In any case, tell someone where you are going and report back on returning.
Look at weather forecast before setting off and always keep an eye on the weather.
In case of doubt, go back. It’s better to give up than risk bad weather or face difficulties beyond your strength, ability, equipment. Think about alternative return routes before starting the tour.
Take your rubbish back with you. Respect flora and fauna. Do not leave marked paths. Don’t take short cuts. Respect local culture and traditions, remember you are a guest.
All described walks are to be undertaken at own risk: due to the natural environment in which they are, we recommend paying attention to falling branches or rocks, to slippery ground and to exposed trails.
