HOW AMAZING AND GORGEOUS
OUR MOUNTAINS,
ARE!

A natural dive at high altitude offers us unique visions, gives us great emotions and satisfaction, both during the route and once we reach the destination. Mountains captivate us, in summer and winter, with their trails and valleys, forests and rocks, between sky and clouds.

However, it is important to prepare for this adventure, no matter how big or small, in a conscious way, so as not to run into nasty surprises or be caught unprepared!

Here is a small handbook to help you make the most of your hike!
