  • Continuously check your position
  • When planning a hike, take into account that your body cannot achieve top performance every day. Increase the strain slowly rather than starting off with the hardest stage.
  • Bring along flip-flops or other comfortable shoes. After a day’s hiking releasing your feet from the hiking shoes is a real treat, and sometimes hiking shoes are a no-no in the sleeping areas of mountain huts.
  • Plan exit strategies: Which place allows you to abort the tour as quickly as possible?
  • Weather: Ask the proprietors of the huts for advice. They are familiar with the local conditions and know the forecast. It is better to stop a hike early than to get caught in a sudden thunderstorm in high Alpine terrain.
  • Be aware of Alpine dangers.
  • Equipment: bivouac sack, telescopic umbrella, hiking sticks, bonnet and gloves
  • 3.0°C
