Safety in ferathas

Turizem Kranjska Gora appeals to the information points, room hosts, equipment lenders, in short to all those who have contact with the guests, and I would like to take this opportunity to once again appeal to you to draw the attention of the guests to the recommendations that we, together with the guides of the IFMGA and the UIMLA, have agreed on in numerous meetings and which are also a part of the information boards under the entrance of each feratata:

proper equipment (suitable footwear and clothing, climbing harness, self-protection kit, helmet, gloves),
appropriate weather conditions (rain, wind, snow, possibility of thunderstorms, severe heat are not suitable weather conditions!),
adequate safety clearance, movement on the ferrata and continuous fastening of the self-protection kit,
access to the ferrata via designated routes and respect for private property,
use of official car parks (the nearest ones are at the kindergarten, Vrt Viharnik and Fabrka),
protection of flora and fauna in the ferrata itself and in its surroundings,
helping to improve the ferata with the money raised from the sale of “Ferata Kranjska Gora” wristbands (this year in green in both children’s and adult versions),
each feratata has a maximum number of participants in a group depending on the difficulty of the route (Aljaževa up to 6 persons, Pot Mojstranških Veveric up to 3 persons, Hvadnik up to 6 persons, Jerm’n up to 3 persons),
when choosing a guided tour, choose a guide with the appropriate licence (UIMLA, IFMGA) and pay attention to the size of the group.

Everyone’s safety starts with each individual visitor!
