Please note that different seasons and weather conditions significantly affect your outdoor experience: many of the hiking destinations are not maintained during the winter, which may make the terrain very difficult and sometimes dangerous to access. Find out about the daily weather and hiking conditions in advance to assess the potential risks. Many nature trails intersect with cross-country ski tracks in the winter. Note that walking on ski tracks is not permitted.
