Swansea Ramblers Walk


Swansea Ramblers visit Austria
Day 7: Heiterwanger See - Plansee - Forelle

11th July 2018

Leader: Self-guided day




Wednesday is the day off for the walking guides and intended to give visitors a day off from walking.  Some of us took the bus to Heiterwangersee and Plansee Lakes for a boat trip to Forelle.  The bus was delayed by roadworks and a very large group of German women on a coach trip had prebooked the return boat so we had to wait another hour to get back - to the roadworks!  Despite all this, we had a lovely day out.

Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities from the long strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker to the short, easy lowland walks where maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people.  If you'd like to try a walk then do come along and find out what all this Swansea Walking in the great outdoors is all about.  It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.  If you get the bug and want to walk or stroll regularly then you can also become a member.  Just ask us about the walks and social events we do when you join us for a Swansea Walk.

Our mountaineer has turned into a seadog (or should that be a lake dog?)

And there go the others on the return journey
- they took the earlier bus from Ehrwald

But when it came, a coach load of German women got on
(Despite earlier asking the captain three times that we could go on it!)

Had another look around as we had an hour to pass before the next boat
