Safety information



Before leaving, prepare your itinerary well

Take note of the correct trails to take near crossroads and any refreshment points along the way, where you can stop for a break. If you can, download the track to consult it even offline.

Respect the environment and choose a trail suitable for your physical preparation

When hiking in the mountains, remember to leave the sites you visit clean. In addition, take into account length, height variance and any technical difficulties of the trail you have chosen.

Choose suitable equipment and gear

If you go trekking, you must have technical boots, water bottle, rain jacket, food, a headlight battery, any spare parts and a first-aid kit. If you hike over via ferratas or practice climbing, don’t forget the appropriate technical equipment.

Consult the weather reports, …

… especially local ones, that give more specific information. This advice is especially important if you are tackling a via ferrata: before setting off, make sure the weather is stable.

It is always better to complete your adventure in company

This way, you can always count on mutual help in case of difficulty. In the mountains, even a simple sprain can become a problem if you are alone.

Share information about your itinerary with somebody

Tell friends, family or mountain hut managers which itinerary you intend to take and the estimated time of your return. This information can be essential in case of emergency.

Rely on a mountain professional

Alpine guides, mountain hut managers or mid-mountain guides are excellent sources for obtaining useful information on the environmental conditions of mountain routes.

Pay attention to the signage along the way

Follow the signage bearing information on trails (number and destination), and the indications you find along the path, namely the white and red trail signs. Always remember to bring a map of the route (paper or digital) with you.

Don’t hesitate to go back on your steps

If tiredness arises, if you have doubts about the route or if the weather turns bad, it is better to go back along the trail you already completed rather than risk continuing.

In the event of an accident, call 112

When you call, remember to provide information on the exact location of the accident, the activity you were conducting, the number of people involved and their conditions, the weather conditions and the telephone number from which you are calling.

Turn-by-turn directions

Con uno dei taxi jeep in partenza da San Lorenzo in Banale, saliamo comodamente lungo la prima parte della Val Ambiez, raggiungendo così il Rifugio Al Cacciatore. Già da qua si gode di un panorama meraviglioso; continuiamo a piedi lungo la strada che porta al Rifugio Agostini, posto proprio alla testata della valle. 

Il rientro avviene lungo lo stesso percorso o lungo il più ripido sentiero che collega i due rifugi.
