What Relaxed said; no way can you guarantee in advance. I spent last June through September in Switzerland, whose north had a lousy summer, especially July. But the Graubunden lived up to its reputation as being sunnier than elsewhere, and I enjoyed some very good weather after I had abandoned the incessant drizzle of the Oberland for Zermatt. OTOH when I ...
Depending on what you consider the boundary of Europe, Mount Elbrus can be considered the highest point in Europe. At 5642 m, it's considerably taller than Mont Blanc (4810 m). The standard route is pretty nontechnical, and requires only an ice ax and crampons.
I did something similar last year. From Zermatt a hiker can easily reach the Oberere Rothorn and the Mettelhorn, both 3,400+. The Mettelhorn is probably my best hike ever. 1800 metres ascent, a harmless glacier crossing (had no axe or crampons), and a wonderful view! My personal record is the Stockhorn from Gornergrat, at 3,532 on the newest map, but I ...
Quarry Rock is a personal favourite of mine. Plus, Deep Cove is a awesome little town to stop for some ice cream, a drink, or a swim after the hike. It's roughly a half-hour hike up. From Downtown Vancouver, take the 211 to Phibbs Exchange then transfer to the 212 Deep Cove. Then, it's a short walk to the trailhead.
Well, as you can tell if you're in Vancouver, the North Shore didn't really get winter this year. The BCMC Trail is just east of the Grouse Grind and starts from the same parking lot - it's also a way better hiking trail. The Grind is basically a staircase in the forest and it's name is well-earned. If you don't feel like hiking the trail both ways you can ...
Sounds like you're out of luck if you don't have private transport. Only the French Wikivoyage seems to have anything on the site itself, and it's basically empty, so I went hunting for past reviews or blogs. As a result, there's an excellent review on tripadvisor on the park. Unfortunately.... You may think that the park is difficult to reach, this is ...
Firstly, the minimum age for children is 8 years so the kids of 10 will be allowed to go on the pathway. T he walk is linear, meaning you start at one end and finish at the other. You can't go halfway for example and then turn around. There is some easier to understand information and instructions about how to reserve in English at www.caminodelrey.es For ...
There's a great view trail at the superfund site (Pritchard Park) and Rockaway Beach but really most of the trails do not give a view of Seattle.
You can't just get to the boardwalk. You have to walk either 2.7km from the Northern Access point to the Boardwalk...and then back again or 2.1km from the southern access point to the boardwalk and back again. 5km walk at least! Also plenty of info in English here: http://www.caminitodelrey.info/en/5243/frequent-questions
There are several mentions of minors amongst the FAQ's but perhaps the most conclusive is: Moreover, children and dependent minors must be under supervision of parents or a legal guardian at all times during the route. There are various requirements that are not typical of a tourist spot so reading up on a proposed visit seems advisable. No ...
Neithe the official Spanish tourist page or the English official site's FAQ mention children - the main focus is on fitness really. It's worth noting that traditionally, it's been noted as Spain's most dangerous hike, which would normally not be a good idea to take kids on. However, the photo of how it looks in 2014 shows an easy boardwalk path, plus ...
