I would hate seeing too many tourists in this fantastic environment, so let us start with the negatives first: it is quite a drive, and at this time mid March really cold and windy. You also need a serious hike of at least 3.5km through...More

We were there hiking with our snowshoes and it just so happened to be a very bad weather. Snow was coming down on us hard and we couldn't see almost anything. If the weather would have been nice this would have been a better experience!

I loved this place even though it was misty and you couldn't see very far, the snow was immense and the White Queen could easily have come into view. Equally the moving topiary from the Shining were there. Fabulous place.
