Summer is not only pool parties, bonfires on the beach or day-off in cities or at the sea. For adventure passionate, mountains offer to you lots of different and exciting things to do if you are planning a vacation with your friends.
Hiking, climbing, via ferrata or other typical activities are the best choice to totally live the mountains, but we also selected for you, in the occasion of the World Friendship Day, 5 activities to enjoy with your friends in the mountains.
Prepare a list of the essentials to camping with friends into the woods or in a camp-site. If you’re seeking more calm and a chance to be at one with nature, spend a night in a mountain refuge or bivouac; you will wake up to natural light at dawn and with just the rhythm of nature around you.
If you and your friends are not faint-hearted, the canyoning combines climbing, hiking through gorges and cascades with swimming and sliding down waterfalls or river canyons. You have to wear a wetsuit, hiking boots, helmet and harness and you will be accompanied in routes with variable physical difficulties.
Hiking is definitely the most typical activity to do in the mountains; you and your friends can find lots of trails with different levels of difficulty, lenght and elevation gain. For an alternative tour, look for the round-trips to enjoy various landscapes around you during the hiking.
If you are not a sea lover but you are looking for relax, mountains may offer what you need as well; you can enjoy chilling and sunbathing off a mountain lake or swimming in its cold water – where not forbidden. Alpine lakes are an alternative option, but you have to hike up to the lake and then relax.
Prepare a picnic basket filled with yummy treats and drinks and go into the wood looking for a pretty little spot to enjoy your meal with your friends. If you opt for staying in an equipped area, you can also open the fire and cook in the grill you may find there. Don’t forget a camera, a guitar or some outdoor game as well.
