Safety instructions

The mountains are a difficult environment, especially during periods of bad weather.
Don’t forget that in summer, the weather can change very quickly at high altitudes and can provoke rapid increase in the waterways.
Always be well equipped: adequate shoes, clothing to protect you from the rain, cold and water.
Do not overestimate your capacities!
Respect your environment: don’t leave your rubbish and please be kind enough to remove that of those more inept than yourselves.
Never throw cigarette ends from your car window.
Nature – plants and animals: take time to observe and admire them, but respect them by leaving them in their natural environment.
Beware of the free roaming pigs: although very friendly, they may bite. Do not feed them.
It is strictly forbidden to camp outside of designated areas.
