«Galdueziñak» mountain group
Who are we?
We are a group of UD students and alumni that meet every 2 weeks to go hiking and invite all those who want to join us on our outings to come.
The group was created 27 years ago now.
What do we do?
At Galdueziñak we do mountain hiking to see the most representative Basque peaks and sometimes, even those in neighbouring communities. These are not just outings to get to know the area. Each outing is a real sports activity in nature: We walk for hours, so you need to have a good physical condition.
We do an outing every fortnight (usually on Sundays). We often go on weekend trips but, do not worry, we will let you know in advance. In fact, we will send you an email with route details and further information before each outing.
We are a group of volunteers, so the calendar is provisional and may change depending on the availability of the most veteran volunteers.
How can you sign up?
First, it is imperative that you speak and understand Spanish. Outings are long and, at any given time, you may get easily disorientated or need medical assistance.
In the event that you needed medical assistance, for example, we could be with you until the rescue team arrived, but then we should take care of the group and you would have to be able to communicate with whoever came to assist you.
Second, you MUST follow these steps:
- Have hiking/trekking boots + adequate sports equipment
- NO sports shoes (gym shoes / tennis shoes / trainers).We will check the equipment before each departure and only those who have the appropriate equipment can accompany us, regardless of whether or not they have paid the transport fee.
- Complete and sign the registration form and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.orgWe will ask you to send us a copy of your insurance so that we can know where to call in case an accident happens. Do not forget that we do activities in the mountain so you should be aware that general insurance DOES NOT cover mountain accidents. If a rescue team were required, you will have to pay for it, unless you are federated.
- You must sign the Liability Waiver by hand and send it by email to: email@example.com
It is imperative that the signature be handwritten or that it be a digitised handwritten signature. Names typed by computer will NOT be accepted.
If you collect a copy at DeustuCampus, do not forget to take a picture or scan it, and return it to us so that we can have it in digital format.
Attach registration form + liability waiver.
Once you have completed these steps (but not before), we will include you in our mailing list to send you information about our outings.
IMPORTANT: The number of places available varies depending on the outing. Stay tuned for emails from us and read them carefully. We will include a link to Doodle so that you can sign up for the outing you prefer.
