    To keep the mountains a pleasure, choose an activity suited to your level of experience and physical ability. Check the weather forecast and seek advice from qualified professionals, and inform someone of your itinerary. Make sure you're properly equipped: helmets are compulsory, and we strongly advise you to wear kneepads, elbow pads, back protection and gloves. In your rucksack, take a water bottle and snacks to keep your energy levels up, and a survival blanket or warm clothing. Protect yourself from the sun with sunscreen and sunglasses. Don't forget binoculars to add a touch of observation to your adventure.

    For your dog's safety, we do not recommend mountain biking.
