Rules for safe hiking
- Listen to your body: Hiking can be exhausting, so pick your pace to suit everyone in the group!
- Plan ahead to minimise risks: Knowing about the total distance, altitude difference and difficulty level of your planned hike is just as important as checking the weather forecast in advance.
- Bring the right equipment: rain and sun protection, plenty to drink and a first-aid kit. Pack everything you might need but try to keep your bag from getting too heavy.
- Don’t forget to take a break (and drink): Take regular breaks and use them to recharge your batteries. A win-win situation: A short break is the perfect opportunity to fuel up for the rest of your hike with a small snack while enjoying the splendid views.
- Respect the signs: For your own safety and that of other guests, hiking trails are clearly marked. Please stay on these marked trails! This helps you to avoid getting lost and to prevent falls. By the way: Steep old-snow fields are particularly dangerous!
- Keep an eye on the weather: Discontinue your hike if storm clouds are starting to form!
- Be careful when hiking with children: Difficult routes that require lots of concentration are not suitable for children. Rather choose a varied and safe tour that is all about playful exploration!
- Respect grazing animals: Do not disturb wild or grazing animals in their natural habitat! For instance, mother cows can get aggressive when you try to pet or feed their young.
- Keep your dog on the lead: If you bring along your four-legged friend, keep him on the lead and don’t let him near grazing animals!
