  • Fabulous. The top of the world. Well, not really but that's how it feels when you have just cycled up it. 8 miles climb, but the trip down is a blast. And the views are breathtaking; it's like being in a light aircraft. Well worth a trip. Try not to take your car; there are too many up there and definitely don't take your camping car during prohibited hours.
  • Wonderful, resting and beautiful place in summer. Winters can be hard but are equally beautiful. Paragliding, hiking, rock riding, canyoning... Plenty to keep you busy if you want 😊
