  • Great running and trekking paths. You can choose between different routes in beautiful nature surrounded by low mountain peaks...
  • A beautiful park. A great outdoor experience. We took the G6 road to magaro peak (2255 meters) and for the two of us it took a little less than 6 hours with breaks and a picnic for lunch. Always stay on the white-red trail since there are no other signs (everything else is worn out).
