  • If you are tired of dajvit'-come to the Lake) there are boats, catamarans etc. The road to the Lakes very picturesque and beautiful, but if you are a first time sat on the bike-be careful, expensive, difficult. The lakes themselves are beautiful, we went hiking route, but only up to the Middle, it started to rain. Overall-worth a visit
