Project Description

Day Hikes

A day hike is a great way to get away from the city and offer different approaches to the mountains and surrounding areas.
Shorter tours are a great way for observing nature, photography or just relax in a beautiful place. Longer Tours require a higher level of endurance and are a good way to get in shape for multi day ventures or endurance sports events like trail races and are therefore a perfect way to challenge yourself in every days life.
Just let me know what you are up to and I come up with suggestions!
