ATTENTION!!!

Sports / trekking shoes (with a clear tread) are compulsory and will be checked by a guide before starting the trip. During our trips, we recommend mountain clothing or sportswear.
During the April – September period it rarely rains. Even in the highest parts of the mountains the temperature is at about 22 degrees, reaching up to 26 degrees in June, July and August. The T-shirt usually is enough, but it’s always a good idea to take long-sleeved clothing.
The October – March period has variable weather and more frequent rainfalls (we always try to avoid our trips during rainy days, but sometimes the weather may surprise us). We recommend (during cold days it’s obligatory) warm clothing with long sleeves (long pants, polartec) and, just in case, a rain jacket which also can also serve as a windstopper.
In the event of force majeure preventing the trip from continuing or the event endangering the health or life of the trip participants (weather conditions etc.), the organizer reserves the right to modify the route or exchange for another / other date, or cancel it.
Recommended minimum age for children: 8 years
