Protection forests are usually situated on steep, exposed terrain and are often difficult to access. It is not in the interest of Helvetia or the relevant forestry authorities that visitors walk in the protection forests. In your own interest we request that you not walk in the protection forests. We care about your health and safety.
If you would like to take a walk in a protection forest and are interested in the scientific details, we would advise you to use the protection forest paths that are provided and maintained by the Swiss Insurance Association throughout Switzerland.
