This expedition doesn't require great physical preparation. There
will be some walking, but only easy slopes. The weather is generally
nice, with very comfortable maximal and minimal temperatures. We
recommend you to wear light clothes for the days and a coat for the
nights. We also recommend you to bring a raincoat, because of the
dense coast fog that one can find in mountain climate.
Note: this trip
will only take place with a minimum of 3 participants.
