Preparation for the activity Behaviour rules
No matter whether you set off alone, with a partner or in a group, a hike in nature always involves minor and major risks that can be kept to a minimum with the help of the best possible preparations.
Once you set off, always remain reachable!
Take along a mobile phone or smartphone and a portable charger and inform at least one friend who can serve as an emergency contact or a hut that is located along the route. Let them know which area you will be using and what your destination is.
If you are with a group, you should take advantage of this benefit and always keep your co-hikers in view. By doing so, everyone can keep watch on everyone.
Regularly drink water!
You can easily become dehydrated on hot days. Start off with enough water and keep your thirst in check.
Just like taking regular drinks of water, you should also take regular breaks and eat something.
