The first and more important rule while doing an Experience is common sense.
You are hiking with other people and you have to take care of those hiking next to you. Do not put in danger any of the members of the group nor yourself. You are part of the group and it is your responsibility to stay safe. Stay with the group. WeGaw is all about sharing hiking experiences and helping each other. Please take care of each other to avoid any injuries or anyone getting lost. Take care of the rest of the group, leave noone behind.
Respect each other physically and verbally.
Respect the law and the environment.
Do not leave trace of your trip in the nature.
Pets are not allowed if otherwise specified.
Before you go Hiking
Make sure you know you mental, physical and technical skills and your limits. This will prevent you from having injuries or harming others.
Make sure you have a printed copy of all the resources WeGaw provides for your hike: terrain conditions, weather conditions, map and the equipment you will need.
Take enough food and drinks for the duration of the hike. Bring at least 2 liters of water per day.
Bring a first aid kit. Learn how to deal with basic injuries, as well as preventing dehydration, heat stroke or hypothermia.
Leave no trace behind, hike with a bag to dispose your waste.
Stay on the trails. Staying on the trails you ensure you will not hurt nature and you will minimize the chances of getting lost.
If you see any damage in the trail or trail signs, write it down and send us the exact location, we will update the information and the authorities.
Do not disturb the environment with music or shouts.
Respect animals and plants, do not touch them nor pick anything from the trails.
Do not overexert yourself, this is not a competition. Take regular breaks as needed.
