“If you are looking for a trip that features rugged beauty, unspoiled landscapes and a different 'scene' each time you turn around, this is the one to take! Our many hikes were diverse enough, challenging but not relentless, and complimented by excellent guides knowledgeable of the land and its people. You wont be disappointed especially if lucky enough to have Robelk as your tour leader
