Hiking safety rules

security_trip

  • Always pay attention when your tour guide gives you some recommendations. Stay with your group, don't split up and take different trails.
  • On the campsite and along the trail do not create dangerous situations. Never climb on waterfalls. A high number of injuries occur on waterfalls and slippery wet rocks. Do not smoke inside tents and never use open fire in or near a tent. Never use your mobile phone during a thunderstorm, better to switch it off.
  • You must be very careful on the trail. Do not step on the wet, slippery stones or woods. Steep and rocky areas and slippery stream crossings require extra attention and careful footing. Always try to find more safety ways to cross these places.
  • Participants must inform the guide if: they feel not good or got injured, they need extra stop for the rest, etc.
  • Usually there are no special toilet facilities along the trails. Try to choose the toilet place at least 200 feet from any open water and your campsite.
  • Local wild animals will always try to avoid people. There are several kinds of snakes, but only one is poisonous – it’s “Vipera berus” – will never attack first. You’ll just have to be careful and watch your steps.  If you meet a wild animal while hiking – don’t panic slowly without noise step back and you’ll not get in trouble.
  • Leave local plants and animals alone. Don’t eat berries or mushrooms you find, even if they look familiar. Do not break trees. Leave everything as you found it. Take your trash with you.
  • Travellers must respect the local people, culture and environment they are visiting.
  • Drinking alcohol on the trail is not permitted. However it is not strictly prohibited. In the evening you can relax and enjoy our dinner with a glass of wine or any other drink. Dear smokers, please try to smoke away from others.
  • In case of any kind of emergency (bad weather, serious health problems etc.) for group safety our guide has a right to slightly change the itinerary or decide to stay in a campsite for the day.
