(breakfast will be in Moulin D'or or Wooden Bakery)
(lunch will be in the nature after we take a break for 20 mins)

Our hike will be short for those who love swimming and it can be longer for those who prefer hiking. Once we reach the place we will have a 2 hours rest for swimming, lunch and resting; we will inform swimming lovers to stay there if they want before we continue our hike.

The short hike will be 5km while the longer one will be 3 - 4km extra before we return to the swimming area. This is the amazing area where we will have a 2 hours break.

Swimming lovers can swim. Nature lovers can be amazed just to sit their and rest their mind from the city traffic area all day long. While photo lovers can be amazed taking photos by lovely nature and tunnels we pass through before we reach the swimming area.

All-in-all, the day will be lovely despite the fact that the hike is somehow short 5km to 8km; but the area we will be at is somehow calm and very few know about the location for hiking/swimming.

After we finish our day and return back to the Pullman to leave, we will pass by the Gelato to have a quick break eating Italian Icecream, juice drinks or anything else if needed.

We Plugin, You Hike

Hiking and computers seem like two entirely different worlds, but the internet connects outdoor fanatics every day. So every hike you join us with, we will send you full information and pictures about the whole day we spent with you. We expect you to sign-up on our website to be able to provide you with all the data about the previous hikes you joined us with.


WaH usually prefers being friends with guides around the area we will be hiking to be introduced by him to the people we pass by. Despite the fact that we have a few personal trails for us we always like that some guide from that area to join us. Having a guide with us will help us know the area more and more. Guides usually know lots of information about the weather in that area, trees, water and information about the history as well.

Preventing Hiking injury

Warm weather and outdoor exploring are here. Hiking is a great exercise and great fun sports, especially if you keep yourself safe and injury free. Before heading, make sure that you are physically capable of going on a hike. If you suffer from arthritis or other joint conditions, check with your doctor first. In the end, we have a fully conditioned First-Aid kit. We want you to tell us everything happened in case you had any problem while hiking or even before hiking.

Tips for Photographers

Even the most experienced hikers can get blisters on their feet. Unfamiliar terrain and inclines add more stress to footgear. Make sure your camera is protected very well, or put it in the bag when not needed and in the end listen to us since we have enough experience in hiking and taking shots with the Camera.
