Choose the route according to your experience and your physical preparation: start with short distances first!
The more, the merrier: leaving alone for a hike can be risky, travel with at least one other person, the experience of a Trekking is better when shared with friends and family!
Program your Trekking in advance, check trails and paths on the maps, have a look online to find out more about your itinerary, ask somebody who already walked the same route.
Prepare your backpack: have a look at our check-list to be sure you already packed all the equipment you may need during the Trekking!
Don’t forget to check the weather forecast.
If you really want to try the experience of a Trekking but you don’t feel ready to do it by your own, just ask one of our Alpine Guides!
Try to estimate an average journey-time of every route, considering the physical condition of each member of the group.
Inform the Hut owner or who is waiting for you at home about your time of arrival and the itinerary.
Keep your eyes open: while you’re walking, check the number of each footpath, but don’t forget to enjoy nature and its magic!
A plan B is always a good idea! Organize an alternative route in case of bad weather or unforeseen event: go back if it’s necessary, play it safe!
