Our top five tips for mountain hiking

  1. Plan your hike: Find out as much as you can about the trail you want to hike - how long it is, what the terrain looks like, whether it passes places to eat or shop on the way. The more you know about the trail, the better you can prepare and pack for your hike.
  2. Have the right equipment: The equipment you need depends on the type of hike you're planning to do, but you can never go wrong with a pair of proper hiking boots, windproof and waterproof clothing, as well as a backpack with water and something edible.
  3. Dress for unexpected weather: The weather can change quickly when hiking in the mountains, so always pack windproof and waterproof clothing, even if the sun is shining when you're about to set off.
  4. Adjust your speed: Take it easy and adapt your speed to the terrain and your physical ability. Take regular breaks to rest and don't forget to enjoy the views along the hiking trail.
  5. Respect the nature: Show consideration for the environment and wildlife by leaving minimal trails behind you.
