Super journée super excursion le Guide est patient le Chauffeur était hyper drôle. Concernant la journée: Après la prise en charge nous avons fait de la route pour arriver au lac après le Lac un arrêt dans un magasin de miel. Par la suite nous avons déjeuné dans un endroit en montagne puis avons fait un autre stop dans un magasin de produit local puis encore un arrêt encore dans une montagne où sont proposés des activités comme le quad ou de la tyrolienne.
