Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Alpine Rhine Cycle

The Grisons, or GraubŁnden as it is referred to by the Swiss, is considered by many to be Switzerland's most beautiful region with a multitude of lakes, valleys and snow capped mountain peaks. The Rhine river has its source in the Grisons, connecting its mountains to Lake Constance over 100km away. Travelling alongside the Rhine and Lake Constance, this diverse cycle adventure from Switzerland, passes through Liechtenstein and Austria before returning to Constance in Germany. The relaxed itinerary offers the flexibility to explore the gorges of the Grissons on foot, cycle to winegrowers villages to sample the local specialties, visit the Museum of Art in Liechtenstein, and climb up to a castle for a picture postcard view.

traveller reviews

The cycle trip was a very enjoyable experience - the bikes were provided in excellent condition and very fit for purpose.
The hotels were excellent and very comfortable, and the cycle route was very interesting in beautiful countryside and apart from one day fitted the low to moderate rating.
One suggestion if people plan to arrive one day early in Konstanz:
Get your bikes early and take a ride along the lake front to Mainau Island and beyond past orchards and farms with views of the lake. A very nice, scenic ride (about 35 km return) and a good way to get familiar with your bike.
