• Weekend in Stara Planina

    First weekend of October, we decided to visit south eastern part of Serbia. Packed quickly and together with my boys, we were on the road to Stara Planina. 4 hours later we reached our hotel in the middle of mountains and forests. It felt as we were the only ones on the road. Literally no cars on the road, nobody.

    Image above taken from DJI Mavic Air, of this particular road. We had no idea how beautiful it is 😁

    Flims - hiking at its best!

    This past weekend, I took off to see so called Grand Canyon of Switzerland. Located few kilometers away from cities of Chur on the East and Laax on the West. According to ‘Summer hike’ app - you can download from Appstore for free - this place is amongst 32 best hiking summer trails in the country.
    After what I saw, I have to say that it deserves its place on this list! Whole hiking area around Flims is worthwhile spending at least a weekend and its a great family destination, with all levels trails, lakes, waterfalls, canyons. After whole day of activity, there is no shortage of restaurants & bars.
    Definitely worthwhile a visit!

    The Grand Canyon of Switzerland

    Reachable after 40-50min hike from Flims-Waldhaus parking. Breathtaking and a must see if you like hiking and mountain views! Your reward is the canyon of river Vorderrhein. 400m down to the river from the top can make you breathe heavily, but it is worth every step of the hike! At the end of the trail, you must climb up to the viewing platform called Il Spir, where you will have a complete canyon view. Worthwhile a note is, that if you like sunsets, it is a perfect place to be!

    Glacier Landing

    I booked my flight through the site: www.helicopterflight.ch
    I specifically looked for a route, where I could see glaciers, and in this case Aletsch Glacier - the longest one in Europe. Landing on top of it was only a wish, that I placed in the comments section. In the reply I got, company stated that only pilot can make this decision on the day of the flight. Why? well, safety first - weather, snow cover status etc...
    So I had my fingers crossed while driving to Lauterbrunnen, when confirmation came on the day before, that we are a 'GO' for a flight. So, to make a long story short, as you can see on the image - we made a glacier landing! How cool was that! I was absolutely amazed! Happy days!

     

    Flying over Swiss Alps

    Just before leaving for family vacation in Tunisia, I went for a quick trip to Switzerland. Luckily, weather was fantastic and I could one of my dreams come true - a helicopter flight over the glaciers in the Alps. In-flight image here is taken with iPhone 7+ in Beastgrip-pro with wide Moment lens.

    Mt. Hoven 1011m

    Incredible hiking trails above the fjords at the top of Norway. Using hi-tech gondola lift to go up to the hiking areas. Beautifully prepared trails from entry to expert levels, with extreme via-ferrata and suspension bridge above the fjords.
    True paradise for everyone who loves mountains.

    Bodalsbreen Glacier trail

    On our last day in Norway, we hiked around glacial lake Lovetnet. It is incredible to realize, that while you hike in the valley, you are surrounded by waterfalls coming out of the gigantic ice cap on top of the mountains. The only thing you are able to see are the edges of beautiful blue ice.
