Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Germany

Germany

Germany's northern lowlands stretch from the Netherlands to Poland, past southern Denmark where it bridges the North and Baltic seas. The magnificent Rhine and Main Rivers, cut through the Central Uplands. To the south, the infamous Danube River runs from the Black Forest, near France & Switzerland, to Munich.

German forests are studded with beech, oak, birch, chestnut, lime, maple and ash trees.  They are beautiful places to escape the crowds and walk or hike and relax. Alpine regions are home to wildflowers – orchids, cyclamen, gentians, pulsatilla, alpine roses, edelweiss and buttercups. We urge our travellers to stick to the paths, especially in alpine areas and coastal dunes where ecosystems are fragile.

The Weather in Germany

Germany is a fine destination year-round, but sunny weather is more likely between May and September.

Remember that rain is a possibility in any month.  In April and May, when flowers and fruit trees are in bloom, it can be mild and sunny. Indian summers that stretch well into autumn are not uncommon.

Between November and early March weather tends to be gloomy and it often drops below freezing. There are only six to eight hours of daylight. In December the sun sets around 3:30pm.
