Easy hike that I did alone in the snow. No need for a guide as long as you stay careful to follow the blue signs. A bit slippery at some point but nothing impossible if you are in a good shape

Select any local taxi drive and enjoy the exclusivity of a quite visit to the nathional park with beachs and lagoons. A Taxi is even cheaper than a tourist buss or vann with several people.

This 6 mile roundtrip hike takes you through a forest, some bogs and then up to a beautiful lake beneath some of the peaks that surround the area. There is one short steep section, but otherwise the trail is flat with occasional slight inclines. The...More
