  • An incredibly scenic mountain drive, with a lovely swimming lake at the end of it. We planned to go on the pedalos, but unfortunately they were all booked up by 3pm when we were there. Still, a lovely day out.
  • Awesome. We took the D23 road up the mountain which is amazing! You end up driving to 1285 m high above the gorge. Its incredibly impressive and if anybody is a budding photographer, take your DSLR as there are stunning views of the Gorge itself, but also Vultures! At one of the viewing points there were 6 vultures right beside us - never seen them so up close. Incredible. We didn't get to boat up the Gorge as it was too windy and we were told it was a 'must', and it looked like it would be pretty amazing. So definitely recommend d that so leave a full day to do everything.
  • Great scenery, good to rent a motorbike and drive around the canyon.
  • Posto incantevole. Da non perdere.
  • A beautiful spot, fantastic scenery, lovely people. Can't wait to revisit!
