  • Typical errors that cause accidents

One-day face-to-face workshop where the tools to minimize and avoid accidents in the middle mountains are offered. How to analyze the risk and how to act if you find yourself in different real accident situations.

“Everyone thinks that accidents happen to others” (GREIM Civil Guard), but more than 50% of the rescues are of normal people, carrying out normal activities and that could be avoided with a minimum knowledge of mountain safety. Most of the errors that lead to an emergency situation have been identified and we will try to minimize them.

The workshop includes:
– Survival kit (for bivouac and heating food)
– Security sheets

You’ll learn:
– Differences between risk and danger and how to manage it
– Most common mistakes and how to act: getting lost, wind, adverse weather, high and low temperatures
– Action protocol practices in the event of an accident
– Communication practices with emergency team
– What first-aid kit should be taken
– How to make an emergency bivouac and an emergency kitchen.

Training opens the doors of access to new adventures. It is not a simple guided outing, it is about expanding and validating the safety concepts of our “all about hiking” course or those learned from experience.


Aimed at all those people who go out to the mountains and want to obtain tools to know how to analyze the dangers and how to prevent and act in the face of the most common incidents and accidents.

Hiking and mountaineering practitioners in general of all levels. All of us who love sports in the mountains have basic knowledge acquired from practice itself, but validating and expanding them with an approved guide and following the B4Experience pedagogical model will allow you to go further, as well as consolidate and master all these knowledge.


We adapt all our courses to the level of the participants so that they can always get the most out of the course

Practical information:

Physical and technical level:

No special preparation is needed for this activity. There will be no large unevenness or distances. We will not move through technical terrain that entails great risks beyond the intrinsic ones that exist in any activity in nature. The objective of the course is to learn to be self-sufficient in this type of activity in this area. We are not going to break any records.


As mountain professionals we not only seek the greatest enjoyment, but also the highest degree of safety possible during the activities. For this we will have personal security equipment, communication and a sufficient first-aid kit.

It is advisable to be in possession of accident and rescue insurance that covers any incident. If you don’t have one, we can manage it for you.


A list of material will be provided to the participants. Although it will be very similar to the material required to carry out activities in the middle mountains in the Pyrenees in winter.
