Safety information

  • Choose a walk that is at the right level for you and examine the route carefully.
  • Check the weather forecast. The weather changes quickly in the mountains.

  • Pay attention to waymarking and signposts.

  • Please protect the environment by keeping it clean. Leave nothing behind except footprints. Wild animals like peace and quiet too! Please avoid disturbing them in any way.

  • As the warning signs indicate, you should not park in the river bed or on the banks. These areas are at constant risk of flooding, which may occur several times each day.

  • Anniviers Tourisme cannot be held liable in the event of an accident.

 

Equipment
