North Alps Trip Log – Austria & Switzerland

Mark Mulrain along with a few friends spent a couple of weeks out paddling in the North Alps. Mark has kindly agreed to his North Alps trip log being published on Unsponsored.

The log details the runs and overall costs incurred during the trip. This should prove to be a useful guide for anyone thinking about paddling out in the Alps. Prices are correct for July 2012 and exchange rates are based upon the published rates on the 23/07/12.
