Thanks for your review and recommendation. Thanks also for emphasising the need for strong boots with ankle support and grip. Its really good of you to spread the word; Maumahoige such a beautiful introductory mountain hike!

You can make different walks, the longest being around 2 hours, in this beautiful National park. The longest walk brings you on top of a hill from which you see many different type of landscapes (ocean, hills, one abbay and a lake).
