The Green Lake (Zelene Pleso) in the High Tatras of Slovakia is a challenging summer hike that will test your endurance, but reward you with some stunning views of the Polish/ Slovakian mountain ranges!
This was one of two hikes I did in the High Tatras and just about takes the trophy home as my personal favourite.
4 seasons in one day is a term used a lot when I was researching Patagonia and it could not be truer when we experienced El Chalten, clear blue skies greeted us in the evening and stormy wind and rain greeted us in the morning. Although this does potentially harm the views you can expect from hiking I actually thoroughly enjoyed hiking in full waterproofs and fully experiencing what Patagonia has on offer.
The hikes of Laguna de los Tres and Laguna Torre are split over two days and both consist of 6 to 8 hours of medium difficulty hiking. We hiked as a group and had a fantastic external guide who really added to the experience of hiking Patagonia especially when the weather was as bad as it was.
All of my previous hiking trips have been booked and planned by myself as I love the independent way of travelling and following my own agenda so needless to say I needed a lot of convincing to take a leap into the unknown and use a tour operator for a trip of a lifetime to Patagonia! Here is my experience of the Intrepid tour Patagonia Wilderness
In Ella and looking for a short but rewarding morning hike? Then look no further than Little Adams Peak.
This hike from the small town of Ella could easily be combined with 9 Arch Bridge and my suggestion is to hike Little Adams Peak for sunrise and see 9 Arch Bridge on your hike back down into the town, which will take no longer than a morning to do both.
Live railway lines, rivers, farms, views and a steep incline. The two-hour hike to Ella Rock has it all and is an extremely rewarding hike when in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is blessed with some fantastic medium difficulty hikes and there is no more unique hike than the one to Ella Rock!.... To get to Ella you would have most likely taken the scenic train route leaning out of the carriages to get that perfect picture for the gram, believe me when I say that I was really looking forward to this journey from Hapitale however the experience was a little lost on me due to the number of selfie sticks and tourist poses throughout the journey. It was not a journey that I could sit back and enjoy the fantastic views. That being said Ella was a perfect stop for a couple of nights and no more so than experiencing the Ella Rock Hike
You know those days when you are really bogged down at work and just want to get away from it all?
Well that happened to me in late September when I took a spontaneous decision to have a weekend away in Sardinia... Google told me Calgary was one of the cheapest places to fly to that weekend and Airbnb told me that I could get a secluded little apartment with sea views away from all the crowds. The only thing missing was a little hiking route to clear my head from all the life stress back home.
Monte Cresia is a scenic 1 hour drive from Calgary and is a great break away from the beach when in south Sardinia
