Have fun in the Dolomites with respect!

Summer sports such as cycling, climbing and mountain biking contribute to create a special relationship with nature and the mountain environment. Before setting out for a hike, a few hours’ walk or bike tour, you should plan your journey in advance and learn more about the place you are going to visit. Mountain sports require knowledge, experience, preparation, evaluation ability, common sense and carefulness. In summer the weather might be risky sometimes; thunderstorms and heavy rainfalls are more likely to happen in the afternoon, so you had better follow this old CAI (Club Alpino Italiano) motto: "Leave early, go back in time".




Move carefully

While the wood revives, follow the signpost!

In October 2018 Trentino was hit by extreme weather conditions that damaged some of our beautiful paths, and subsequently these had to be temporarily closed down.

We are now working to restore the paths.

Hiking

Important advice and info to keep in mind before you leave, during your excursion and in case of an emergency

Hike safely in the mountains: a few simple rules

  • For your hikes in mountain always choose itineraries in accordance with your technical and physical abilities. Consult maps of the area to visit and check the best way to follow (Alpine guides). If you walk in group including slower hikers, always calculate longer average times to cover the distances.
  • Wear adequate clothing, footwear and equipment suitable for the length and grade of difficulty of trail to be taken. Always try to be self-sufficient and carry with you the necessary to face possible emergency situations and a first aid kit.
  • Preferably do not hike alone in mountain. Otherwise tell someone the itinerary that you are going to follow and let him know when you are back.
  • Check the weather forecast and, while hiking, constantly pay attention to the evolution of the weather.
  • If you do not feel safe, give up. In mountain, sometimes, it is better to surrender that to face the dangers deriving from bad weather conditions or from difficulties superior to one’s limits. In advance look for alternative itineraries to get back.
  • Bring rubbish back with you. Respect the flora and fauna. Remain on the marked tracks, avoiding to follow shortest ways, in order to avoid causing damages to vegetation and the territory. Respect local cultures and traditions, always bearing in mind that you are a guest.
