Mountain safety

Take the necessary precautions

Even experienced mountaineers respect the mountains and take precautions when going out on a mountain hike. The mountain is undoubtedly beautiful, but can also present challenges. You should therefore ensure that you have enough training, experience, local knowledge and equipment required for the trip.

The Norwegian Mountain Code

  • Plan your trip and inform others about the route you have selected.
  • Adapt the planned routes according to ability and conditions.
  • Pay attention to the weather and the avalanche warnings.
  • Be prepared for bad weather and frost, even on short trips.
  • Bring the necessary equipment so you can help yourself and others.
  • Choose safe routes. Recognize avalanche terrain and unsafe ice.
  • Use a map and a compass. Always know where you are.
  • There is no shame in turning back.
  • Conserve your energy and seek shelter if necessary.

Winter time

Many of the precautions you should take in the summer must also be taken in the winter, only to an even greater extent. When it's cold outside, it's extra important that you dress in layers of wool, don't get wet and that you have windproof outwear.
