HOW TO PLAN A SAFE HIKING TRIP?
THERE IS NO SPONTANEITY IN HIKING!
Choose your destination carefully: consider your fitness level, fitness level of your hiking partners, the time you need to get there (and back), the season of the year…
Research thoroughly: weather prognosis, possible closures on the chosen trail, accommodation and shelter options (opened huts), are there any limitations in protected areas, do you need insurance…
