Safety information

It is safest to move in a group if you do not know the terrain or the water area. Before the excursion, it is advisable to acquire the necessary maps and guides and check the weather forecast, particularly when going boating. Wear sturdy footwear and clothes that suit the weather. It is recommended that you take first aid equipment, rainwear, a spare set of clothes, as well as enough drinks with you, particularly in the summer. Remember to wear a floating vest when boating.

In wet weather and in winter, duckboards, rocks and piers can be slippery.

During the snowy season, the trails and routes are not maintained.

In an emergency, dial the number 112. Report your location, what has happened and listen to the instructions.
