The weather was was beautiful and the staff at the hotel recommended a walk along the valley. It seemed a good way of easing slowly into the holiday, rather than setting off straight up the side of a mountain.
It was quite a trek though and we walked for about 20 kilometres over mainly gentle hills. The scenery was amazing and we passed three lakes and people were happily swimming and splashing around in two of them. I tested the water and it was surprisingly pleasant, but I haven't brought my bathers so I won't be going in for a dip.
