Since Europe has some of the most fantastic mountains in the world, it makes a lot of sense to go there for a summer vacation. Here’s a guide for how to go about making this happen.
Where to Go
There are a variety of interesting places you can go in Europe to vacation in the mountains. One such interesting place is Montejaque in Andalucia Spain. You can visit the mountains of limestone in the Sierra De Libar nearby. This gives you lots of great opportunities for things to do including shooting a bow and arrow, climbing the rock faces, kayaking in the mountain rivers, and so on. There are a number of cabins available in the area that you can take advantage of, and many of them offer cottages with two rooms for a week for a reasonable price.
Another great place to stay is Campsite Cerdagne in France. This site has seven acres to it and you can visit the Pyrenees which are right nearby. Some of the peaks go up to twenty nine hundred meters or more. The place also tends to get a lot of sunshine so that your mountain vacationing will be pleasant. Just because you’re up near the top of the world doesn’t mean you have to get rained on all the time, after all.
Another interesting mountain vacation you can try out is in the Jura mountains which are in France. You can tour around on caravans drawn by horses this way to get a really spectacular and scenic view of the surrounding area. You can even do this entirely by yourself if you prefer.
There’s also always the Dolomites in Italy. This area has all wooden furniture and flowers. In a lodge there you can get cakes cooked by hand. If you really want to live in a relaxing remote area for a while as an ideal vacation, this place can really give you some good ideas.
What to Take
The items you take with you on your trip will depend entirely on what you plan to do when you’re there. Obviously you will need supplies if you’re going somewhere really remote. You will also likely need stuff in case of emergencies.
For example, you need a satellite phone to call for emergency help if you’re going to a really remote area. If it’s not going to be quite so remote in the mountains, you might be able to get away with something a little less severe such as just a normal mobile phone.
You will also need plenty of water for your long bike rides, and of course a bike and warm clothing if you plan on going for trips in the mountains. It’s also important to have the right kind of bike if you want to go into the mountains as well, of course.
