Whatever level of walker you are, we recommend booking a guided walk. Is worth the money, you are picked up at the place you are staying, taken to the start of the walk and picked up at the end. You are also accompanied by a knowledgeable mountain guide that will take you to the most beautiful spots.
We are aware that many people do not like to be in groups, but it is easy to get lost on some walks. Here’s a notice issued by the authorities recently following many accidents on walks. Again, tourists have been rescued having disappeared when walking alone or deviating from the recognized paths. In both instances, the tourists were found alive and in reasonably good health by the Forest Police Corps and other emergency services. As a result of the increasing number of these occurrences, the Regional Directorate of Forestry and Nature Conservation has issued a warning to walkers against “randomly and recklessly” deciding to use footpaths in mountainous areas other than those recommended, and against walking unaccompanied. Both actions, the DRFCN reminds visitors, are “contrary to basic safety rules and conduct of hikers”.
