I came with my family group of 5, including a 10 year kid and my 78 year old mom. The walk was a little bit tricky to my mom. But thanks to Johan's guidance, my family fully enjoyed the trip. We took good photos, picked berries, eating BBQ sausages.....and finally dipped in the lake. Although it's freezing, it was indeed an unforgettable memory! Thanks!
