This Natural Park easily accessible by car - its a lovely drive, and you will see amazing mountain scenerey and rock formations. If you have more time, there are great walks, but even a short visit by car is well worth while.

Twice here already, loved it every time. Besides visiting the spot sights I recommend going for a walk around the guided walkpaths. Haven't seen a place like this anywhere else, go there if your have the chance!

Hi I don't remember any guided tours being available. The track that we took was very well marked (and busy) so I don't think you need a guide. Hope you go and enjoy this park . I thought it was magical
