General informations

Departure time will be arranged directly with stakeholders.
Organization, management and conduct of the tours are an exclusive competence of the Professional, qualified by national and regional legislation. The Guide is covered by third party insurance.
Estimated walking times do not include breaks for meals or other reasons. The difficulties of effort required by the proposed hiking trails are represented by three digits according to the CAI (Italian Alpine Club) scale. This rating clearly defines the boundary between hiking difficulties and it is useful to distinguish the different demands
required on a route.
T=TURISTICO (Tourist). No long and cleary visible routes on driveways, muletracks and wide paths, that do not set uncertainties or problems in orientation. Usually they develop below 2.000 m and require some knowledge of the mountain and physical preparation to walk.
E=ESCURSIONISTICO (Hiking). Routes that take place on any kind of soils or on marked tracks on varied terrain (pastures, stony, debris), usually with signals. There may be on short flat or slightly sloping stretches of remaining snow on where, in case of fall, the slide stops in a short space and without danger. Sometimes they develop on open pathless but not problematic grounds, always with proper signals. They may be held on steep slopes, where, however, the exposed sections are usually protected or insured. They may have single steps, or short stretches on rock, not exposed, not tiring nor demanding due to the presence of equipment (cables, ladders, rungs) that does not require the use of specific gear (harness, etc.). They require some sense of direction, and some knowledge and experience of mountain scenes, training to walk, suitable footwear and equipment.
EE=ESCURSIONISTI ESPERTI (Experienced Hikers). Routes generally reported but requiring ability to move on particular soils. Paths or tracks on impervious and untrustworthy terrain (steep or slippery grass or mixed rock and grass slopes, rock, debris). Varied and relatively elevated terrain (stony, short and not steep snowfields, open slopes with no points of reference, etc.). Rocky, with slight technical difficulties (guided trails, easier climbing routes). Paths on glaciers, although flat and/or appearance without clefts are excluded. They require general mountain experience and good knowledge of the alpine environment; safe step and free of dizziness, equipment, tools and proper physical preparation. For guided trails is also necessary to know how to use devices of selfinsurance (carabiners, sink, harness, etc.).
There and back paths provide the same starting and finish point, always along the same route. Ring paths provide the same starting and finish point but return and going routes are different.
Participants must respect the specific instructions on dress and carefully follow the guidelines. Otherwise, the Guide can exclude those who do not follow the instructions and endanger theirown and other participants’ safety.
