Stay safe: Be #AdventureSmart!

There are many, many ways to enjoy the mountains. And whether you're walking, climbing, running, cycling or skiing, they can be as treacherous as they are inspiring.

Many accidents occur towards the end of the day when both you and your phone are low on energy. But there are steps you can take to keep you and your party safe, and many of these are before you even leave home. Why not download our latest safety leaflet, produced in collaboration with AdventureSmartUK, and Cicerone? It's packed with useful safety tips and step-by-step instructions for calling out mountain rescue, in case of emergency. Worth keeping handy in your rucksack!

And don't forget VARTA's handy guides too: Winter Walking Guide or the Spring/Summer Guide. They might just save your life!

Whichever way you plan to enjoy the mountains, be #adventuresmart

Ask yourself these three questions first...

Do I have the right kit?

What will the weather be like?

Do I have the right skills for the day?
