You can do a lot for safety on a hike or mountain tour even before you start: good planning is important. The selection of a route must always be based on the condition and mountain experience of the weakest member of a group. For mountain tours, be sure to inquire about the level of difficulty and the nature of the trail! If you want to be on the safe side, it's best to join a guided hiking group. In addition to the given safety, this has the advantage that the mountain hiking guides know a lot about the country and its people. In addition, hiking with a group of like-minded people is often even more fun.
The equipment must always be adapted to the conditions. A map as well as sun and rain protection belong in every backpack. The weather in the mountains can often change quickly and cause unpleasant surprises. Good shoes are a prerequisite anyway, and telescopic poles protect the knee joints when walking. Don't be reckless even on easy hikes and always take enough food and drink with you, especially when there are children. Don't forget: exercise in fresh mountain air makes you thirsty and arouses your appetite!
