Traveling is a self-discovery journey. You cannot go wrong no matter what destination you choose to visit, especially in the summer where the activities seem endless. In case the Alpes are on your bucket list for this summer, explore these 10 things that you need to know before going there.
The Alps are the amplest mountain space in Europe covering eight countries and great biodiversity on the terrestrial, ecological, genetic, and other levels. Species living there are so unique that they are not found anywhere else on the planet. In addition, the highest peaks in the world exist there, most knowingly the Mont Blanc. The same goes for the biggest European rivers that flow there just like the Po and the Inn. Plus, more than 2000 glaciers cover this area.
Blown by the charm of what they saw in these mountains, humans have inhabited the Alpes including the Japanese Alps for more than 45 000 years, creating a specific culture and adapting to the harsh conditions there. They have used sand, stone, forest trees, and other inputs for their construction work. They have built many towns and took care of the agricultural works there to feed their people the best food they can afford. The industrial revolution has opened their way to expand and not remain isolated. Activities
While winter holds its activities, summer is full of entertainment in the Alps. This magical period is warm and the green scenery covers all the spaces. Activities start with simple but healthy ones like walking under the hot sun. Some tourists prefer to ride a bike instead. Others want to play gold or go to the pool. Families usually spend their day in picnics enjoying the wonderful nature there. Friends gather to do hiking, trail running, paragliding, or rafting. And yes, spiritual activities are also available just like Yoga or meditation.
Italian Alpes are known for the beauty of their natural sceneries where the mountains that used to be covered with snow are now full of colorful plants and flowers. Many tourists visit these Alpes to enjoy a special hiking experience with their friends. They also sail in the blue amazing sea, dive into it, swim in its warm water or practice some traditional water sports also. The most recommended Italian Alps are the Bellagio, the Trentino, and the Lago di Braies.
The origin of the Alps' food goes back to the ancient tribes who used to live there in isolation, creating food from what they have on their lands. These survivors have inspired many chefs and the recipes that have been made still exist up until now. Some recipes are still served as they originally were, while others were modified by taking some ingredients and adding others. However, the base of almost all Alps food is cheese, meat, and potato. So imagine how delicious they are. A few of the top dishes are the fondue, the diots, and the raclette.
A famous Austrian alp, the Saalbach Hinterglemm grasps many adventurous tourists during the summer. You can book a bike ride in the mountains spending the day discovering the stunning nature in the hills. You can go hiking and get the chance to meet new friends from different nationalities. In addition, parks are so amusing there, with trampolines, slides and many restaurants inside.
The stunning nature of the Alpes is a therapy by itself. The trees, the plants, the flowers, the greatest variety of animals, and the other natural elements strengthen your connection with nature, boosting your mood and calming your brain. This peaceful state of being heals all internal wounds and takes your worries away. The Alps is a paradise by itself.
Unlike what is commonly said, prices go down when the winter disappears and the ski resorts shut down. As a result, you will be able to book your hotel night for a cheaper price during summer, enjoying the European Alps destinations and the joy they bring. This off-season offers you the advantage to explore one of the most beautiful natures in the world at affordable prices.
If you are sociable, then prepare yourself to meet new people in your adventures in nature. They certainly are as enthusiastic and active as you are. They also love nature as much as you do and are looking for a new vacation. However, in case you prefer a more relaxing spot than try private hiking or biking tours. Or try to look for peaks less attractive than the crowded ones, where only a few persons will be met there. The choice is yours.
The kings of the Alps are goats with curved horns called the Alpine Ibex that live on high altitude and that are being protected from extinction. Other wild creatures are the Chamois, the Marmots, and the European Lynx. Do not miss the chance to see these extraordinary creatures and realize how beautiful the living beings can be.
