For most water sports you have to be able to swim at least 25 metres and be comfortable going under water unaided. There may also be minimum age limits. Climbing may also have age and height restrictions. So we always recommend checking with the business, either via their website or by email.

These can be purchased online at, or from local shops, such as the tabac or newsagent.

These are simply suggestions, not recommendations, and they are in no particular order. Whatever your activity, do not rely solely on a smartphone app for mountain navigation. You should always carry a map and compass and know how to use them. Also, make sure you take our contact details with you.
