Off-season activities

Hikes or walks in the off-season must follow specific guidelines :

Trail signs may not yet have been put up by spring, or may already have been removed by autumn. Be aware and inquire before you set off.

The same applies for the snow, which may not have melted yet, or snowdrifts, which can take a while to melt, even when it’s sunny. Bring warm clothes and good shoes.

In any case, always visit the Tourist Office to inquire about conditions before you set off in the hills.
