In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.

Hiking Safety

Safety is the number one priority when hiking. As such you should get information beforehand on the area where you plan to hike so that you can consider factors such as your health and level of fitness before embarking. 

You are also encouraged to discuss your hiking goals with us at HADCO Experiences and we will get the relevant information to ensure that you are well informed to make a decision about your preferred hiking destination. Once you decide, you can leave the coordination to us. You are only required to have a fantastic time!

Here are some tips to ensure that you have a safe and comfortable hike: –

  • Before you head out, be sure to wear appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes with good traction. 

  • Bring plenty of water, non-toxic insect repellent and sunscreen.

  • Watch out for animals on the trails.

  • Children should always be accompanied by an adult while hiking, and it is important to stay on the marked trails.

  • If you plan to go off marked trails, ensure that you have an experienced Tour Guide as it is easy to get lost in our verdant forests if you are not familiar with the area.

  • Avoid wearing dark clothing and highly-fragranced body products (lotions, perfumes, oils, etc.)

  • Be mindful that jewellery can become entangled in branches while on hiking trails.

With these tips in mind, you’re ready to hit the trails and explore all that Trinidad and Tobago has to offer!
