Mountain Hiking Tips

Your journey is almost here! Do you want to double-check that you’ve planned everything? We have prepared these tips and recommendations for walking and hiking in the mountains. Read the rules of good hiking!

Choose a route that is suited to your physical abilities and experience: learn to walk before you climb!

The more the merrier: never go hiking alone, the mountains are an extraordinary experience to share!

Research the route, check the trails on the map, and if necessary consult dedicated websites and forums: you can find a lot of useful information from those who already know the route.

You're feeling a little unsure, but you don't want to miss out on the experience of a mountain hike? Consult a local expert or Alpine Guides for advice and safe accompaniment!

Always check the weather forecast, even from multiple sources. It never hurts to ask for advice from someone who knows the mountains better.

Pack your gear, check here the checklist with the equipment you will need for the trekking!

Estimate an average hiking trail time based on your fitness level and that of the other members of your group.

Let the mountain huts or those waiting for you at home know your estimated arrival or return time.

Be prepared for unforeseen circumstances or sudden changes in weather during your trek: retrace your steps if necessary, or consider an alternative route back in advance.

Stay alert! As you hike, keep an eye on trail numbers and follow the markers, but don't forget to take in the beauty of nature around you!

Take your time: on exposed trails, carefully assess before overtaking other hikers and maintain a safe distance from your companions, especially on descents.

Better safe than sorry: Before you head out, check out the instructions from the Alpine Rescue Service. In case of an accident, you'll know what to do to call for help! Enjoy your hike!
