Please follow these safety tips when you go hiking and walking in Norway.
1. Be prepared
Be sufficiently experienced, fit and equipped for your intended trip.
2. Leave word of your route
Many cabins, hotels and other lodgings have tour notification boxes in which you may put a written notice of your planned route
3. Be weather-wise
You should always be alert to forecasts of bad weather, yet not rely completely on forecasts of good weather.
4. Be equipped for bad weather and frost
Always take a rucksack and proper mountain gear.
5. Learn from the locals
Local people can often tell you about avalanche trails, wind and snow conditions, and the safest routes.
6. Use a map and compass
Always have and know how to use a map and compass.
7. Do not go solo
If you venture out alone, there is nobody to give you first aid or notify a rescue service in an emergency.
8. Turn back in time - sensible retreat is no disgrace
If conditions deteriorate so much that you doubt you can attain your goal, turn around and return.
9. Conserve energy and build a snow shelter if necessary
The stronger the wind, the tougher the walking/skiing. Suit your speed to the weakest member of the party.
