Arrange for guided tours, such as hiking, biking, or water sports, to explore the area. Consider hot air balloon rides, helicopter tours, or boat excursions for a unique perspective on the landscape.
Spa and Wellness
Look for accommodations spas or wellness centres close by for relaxation and rejuvenation. Or book private massages, facials, or other spa treatments to unwind at your property after a day of exploring.
Adventure and Recreation
Try adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, or zip-lining. Rent a boat or kayak to explore the lakes independently.
Consider renting a luxury car or hiring a chauffeur for convenient travel in style. Explore scenic routes via steam trains, ferries, or private cruises.
