Tour planning & equipment

Checklists and healthy realism

Nothing points against a spontaneous walk in the sunshine. But if the tour leads into high Alpine terrain, accurate route planning, a complete set of hiking equipment and enough knowhow for emergencies are absolutely required so that hikers and mountaineers are perfectly prepared for almost any situation - and can enjoy a fabulous day in Sölden's mountains.

Tour planning: caution first ...

The longer a tour lasts, the more time is needed for planning it and the heavier is the packing list. Especially multi-day tours require exact logistics when it comes to food and drink, a realistic assessment of physical fitness and a constantly updated weather forecast. In general, it's much better to stop a tour earlier than to experience a sudden drop in temperature in the high mountains. Further useful advice for safe mountain hiking is provided by the general hiking recommendation and the international do's and don'ts mountain rules.


Equipment: The must-haves on the mountain

The equipment list depends on the selected hiking destination and the current weather report.
