Spring and Summer

• Work in Progress •

Although the winter rush is over it is by no means quiet here!

Once the lifts have closed at the end of the winter season, the sun continues to shine and the snow melts.

The place transforms into a spring meadow full of lush green grass covered with a rainbow of wild flowers, broken only by the many waterfalls and rivers.

This is an ideal time for walkers as it's the best time to view the waterfalls and flowers all around the mountains.

The higher you climb the cooler the air and still there is still the chance to find snow and use snowshoes.

For adrenalin filled people into river sports, it is also a brilliant time of year. The rivers are fast flowing as all the snow melt runs downs the mountains and collects in the rivers.

May and June are also the perfect time for road cyclists to explore the area, before the temperature reaches the high summer levels.



For people who like to have their head in the clouds but their feet on the ground!

You can hire guides and/or equipment if necessary.

Please enquire.


Spring, summer and autumn are all times you can dip your foot into all sorts of Watersports on the Rivers

Rafting; Hydrospeed; Canoe-raft; Tubing and Airyak – Twister.
