24 Sep 2016

Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Age Range:
18-24

Customer Travel Tip: Plan what it is you want to experience beforehand as certain places across the region are better suited to some and not others

Liked: Simply incredible nature, lots of mapped out walking routes and great hikes as well as utilising the lakes by hiring kayaks, rowing boats or taking the ferry at regular locations. It is easy to sit and relax on your own but also mix with other travellers and locals who all value the landscape.

Disliked: Expensive bus service and transport systems across the whole area are somewhat lacking

31 Aug 2015

Travel Type:
Alone

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: Don't be intimidated by the weather forecasts- very unpredictable and even "rainy" days can have major intervals of sunlight and calm. Layer, with waterproof jacket/trousers, and give things a chance on the day.

Liked: Wonderful mix of healthy recreation, natural beauty and major literary/cultural interest. Residents very friendly despite constant invasion of outsiders!

Disliked: Inevitably overtouristed but not as bad as I had thought and it's easy to get away from it. Hard to get anything to eat after 9pm or so in many places.
