Safety information

The use of the hiking trails is at your own risk. Obergoms Tourismus AG disclaims all liability and assumes no responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the information on this website.

Take a map with you or download the complete description of the route with a large-scale map. Use only signposted paths and observe all markings and signs - for your own safety, for the protection of the landscape and in respect for wildlife. Be considerate of other users. Take your rubbish and that of others with you.

Weather conditions in the mountains can change very quickly and without warning. Adequate clothing and provisions (food and drink) are very important. If the weather is unstable, it is better to turn around early. Carry additional sun protection with you. UV rays at high altitudes can be very strong, even when the sky is overcast.

Plan your tour carefully and in detail. Inform yourself in advance about the current conditions and weather conditions. The summer sports report provides you with valuable information from the region.

Equipment

We recommend:
  • Good footwear and walking sticks
  • Sun and rain protection and warm clothing
  • Detailed map or information material with good tour preparation
  • Provisions for your day in the great outdoors
