Hi all!

We are a couple who plans to travel to Europe in late September.

Challenging the experts/expertise to recommend Trek worth answer all requirements below:)

Length: around a week.
Difficulty: challenging mountain but not extreme (a year ago did the GR11 third in Spain-that level.)
Accommodation etc:. Don't like cabins. But, of course, need a lot of places full of water (best if nature clean) here and there to buy some groceries and maybe a hot shower.
Getting there: by public transport isn't too expensive/complex

Restrictions: not to be blown, not be too frozen to sleep outdoors (including).
Bonus: around a beach or village to move it 2-3 days chilling out double after the Trek.

Throw me suggestions so far and would love to hear them something more specific: Carpathian Mountains in Romania/Bulgaria, RILA Pirin, TMB.

Thanks in advance for help!

The end of September to request. Mountain passes are closed, close. If you talk about it and challenges at this time the snow.
Someone once wrote about the Sierras in southern Spain that snow comes later there.
Another possible route to the South Ridge, but that may not be enough altitude challenging. Part of the GR11 route.
Try searching in the Apennines in southern Italy.

Hey,

First of all thanks for the reply.

We certainly could do with ridges of 2,000 m or less-even then there is a risk of snow and closing mountain passes?

What about southern European countries (Albania, Bulgaria)?

As I wrote, the GR11 did in August last year and really liked. Looking for something like that.

Check what you suggested and ideas too.

BTW, I am:)

Thank you!

BTW 2, you have a specific recommendation on Trek Apennines? Would love to hear more about the area-not for sale and there doesn't seem to be much information on the Internet (in Hebrew).

I have no personal information about Italy, Albania.
Bulgaria-type free forum with the engine.
Sorry about the shgoiia.
Even 2,000 feet can snow, depending on where Generally I do not recommend taking a risk that this trip doesn't come out every day and to be disappointed.
