Safety in the mountains

Living in the mountains also means taking care of yourself, of those around you and of the environment. Here you find some tips to stay safe in the mountains and enjoy your experience in nature in tranquillity.

Health in the mountain
The positive stress stimuli for the heart and circulation require good health and a realistic self-evaluation. Then, you will benefit from the positive influences of the full immersion in nature which purify us.
Avoid time pressure and set the pace so that no one in the group gets out of breath. You go to the mountains to stay together and experience a moment of intimacy in contact with nature: you don't go to challenge time! Savour the landscape and try to "taste" the air around you: you will soon realize that it is different here! 


1. You improve your muscle tone
2. You enrich your creativity
3. Your blood pressure diminishes
4. It prevents diseases or keeps them under control 
5. It fights depression and increases happiness

Careful preparation
Maps, trekking guides, Internet and experts can provide you with information about the duration, differences in altitudes, difficulty grades and current conditions of each trekking. Always customize your tour according to the group! 
You have to pay special attention to the weather forecasts: rain, wind and cold temperatures may ruin your trekking experience and increase the risk of accidents.
Do not forget to check the rest areas and choose one of our mountain refuges.
Complete equipment
Adjust your equipment to the excursion and make sure that your backpack is not too heavy. Tools and products to protect you against rain, cold and sun must always be included in the backpack, as well as the first aid kit and mobile phone (European emergency call number 112). A map or GPS help orientation.
Appropriate Footwear
Good hiking shoes protect and soothe the feet and improve sure footedness! Make sure you choose the perfect footwear, non-slip, waterproof and lightweight rubber sole. (also boots)

Stay on marked trails
The risk of orientation loss, cliffs and stone fall increase. Avoid shortcuts and return to the last known point if you leave the path. Often underestimated and very dangerous: steep fields of old snow! 

Regular breaks
Breaks during hikes are useful to rest, to enjoy the landscape and conviviality. Food and drink are needed to maintain the level of performance and concentration. Isotonic drinks are ideal for quenching your thirst. Granola bars, nuts, and biscuits calm hunger along the way. Bring a bottle of water, we have many streams where you can fill it up if you finish it! 

Responsibility towards children
Take into account that fun and discovery for kids are fundamental! If there are stretches where kids risk to fall, an adult can take care of only one child. Avoid trails with very exposed stretches. Very demanding tours, which require long-lasting concentration, are not suitable for children. 

Small groups
Walking in small groups guarantee flexibility and allow for mutual help. Tell trusted people about your destination, route and way back. Stay with the group. Solo hikes: be careful: even small accidents can become serious dangerous situations. 

Respect for nature and the environment
Protect nature in the mountains: do not leave waste, avoid making noise, stay on the paths, do not disturb wild and grazing animals, leave plants intact and respect protected areas. To reach the departure of the excursions you can always use alternative means of transport, such as an electric bicycle.
