Now with spring, and the relaxation of confinement measures due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there is a good time to get closer to nature and go hiking, which is an activity available to almost everyone, and in the that we will enjoy beautiful landscapes, fresh air, and a while in the best company of our loved ones.

But although the practice of hiking is something common and very common, it is always advisable to follow certain guidelines to avoid any bad drink, and not to damage the environment.

From the Finca los Pájaros Rural House we have collected some recommendations that we believe should be taken into account:

Recomendaciones para hacer senderismo

  1. We must have the route prepared. It is not advisable not to know before the route that we are going to do, its difficulty, the estimated time to travel it, and if the path is in perfect condition. It is also advisable to indicate this route to someone you know in case any problem arises.
  2. Inform us of the Meteorology. Since we may encounter a storm, snowfall or other conditions that may make our journey difficult. Also be aware of possible sudden rises or drops in temperatures.
  3. Wear suitable clothing and footwear. It is appropriate to wear mountain shoes with a thick, waterproof sole, and with good ankle support to avoid sprains and slips. We will also wear clothes that are comfortable and make us more visible in the event of any mishap. Bringing some warm clothing in case the temperatures drop, or it gets dark, is also a must.
  4. Carry the mobile with a fully charged battery. In many cases we may travel through places where there is no coverage. But it is better to have our mobile phone always available in case we need help and we can resort to using it.
  5. Bring some food and drinks. Water or isotonic drinks are essential to avoid dehydration during the route. It is better to drink continuously in small sips than to drink in large quantities from evening to afternoon. Some energy bar or some food to recharge our batteries can save us from a small fainting spell due to exhaustion.
  6. Use of a trekking pole or similar. That in addition to serving as support, it can serve as a defense against the attack of any wild animal.
  7. Do not approach wild animals, or the farms along the way. They can be wild boars, snakes, or even guard dogs of private farms that we cross during the route. It is best to keep your distance, although not lose sight of them as prevention
  8. Respect the private farms of the tour. If we have to open the doors of the roads, we will leave them behind as we find them. If there is no choice but to cross fields or private properties, we will do so in such a way that our passage causes the slightest deterioration.
  9. Take care of the environment. Not throwing garbage, taking all our waste, and respecting the fauna and flora.

By following these simple guidelines, we will make our walk through nature become an unrepeatable moment for us, and for all those who come later.

Happy route !!!
