About the neighbourhood
This pristine and unpolluted area has much to offer for the adventurous and out door person. From skiing in the winter to alpine flower guides in the summer any nature lover will keep busy with all the sight seeing, 4x4 routes and many other activities to do.
Getting around
All roads in the area are gravel. It is possible to do sight seeing with a normal sedan but a 4x4 would allow for more areas to be visited.
