Hello,

 

Regarding to the replies which aimed me to different interesting sports; like, hiking, rafting ... etc.

 

My flight is tomorrow, so I want to know what to do to sign into a hike activity with a group?

 

Geneva is beautiful and I may spend the whole day discovering the city.

Go to town in mountains. Go to tourist office. Ask them. They'll also have maps of local hikes you can do without guide you can buy or sometimes get for free.

The right shoes are far more important than doing it with a group. Leaving the footwear aside, why would you need a group? Get a map, follow it. Don't pick the trail rated high in difficulty until you've hiked one low in difficulty to get a feel for the rating system. Bring water. Check what the weather is going to be, but be prepared for anything. Tell someone where you are going. Don't expect your cellphone to work. Pay attention to your surroundings, looking back on occasion to see what that looks like in case you need to retrace your steps.

Hiking is very popular in Europe, so a well known hiking trail is likely to have plenty of people on it.


I had a guy in a Pennsylvania ask me once where he could take a hiking class.....

That's wonderful .. so it is not a rule to sign for an official agency for any outdoor activity.
I'm now in Heathrow Airport and going to Geneva the next half hour. UK looks amazing from the airplane. Geneva should be wonderful too.
I have to take a tour in Geneva city for shops, near park .. etc. After one or two days I have to look for the mentioned in this thread.

You directed me to a serious picture of hiking.
This is summer so hiking should be popular to popular places.

Always have cold weather clothing available to you in the mountains.  Above 3,000 meters in the Alps it can snow in the summer.   When I climbed Mt.Fuji July 28-29, 2009 there were rain, fog and high winds.  I later read that 2 hikers got lost and died of hypothermia that same day I was there.  Japan's cities and coastal areas are almost tropical in the summer, 30C or so.  Always respect and be prepared in high mountains.

Well, I actually have been to Switzerland and I spent the week exploring different cities and taking hikes in the small mountains.

I saw the Alps mountains from the hotel room in the beautiful Interlaken and I think I saw the highest one.

 

I thought to take a trip and I didn't, because I didn't have much time.

Have you ever thought about Bulgaria (Bansko/Borovets/Pamporovo. Judging by the tourists coming every year looks like it's getting more popular.

I think most of Europe is suitable for skiing in the next one or two months. I'm thinking of other sports. I watch water sports on YouTube and they look amazing too.

Also, skydive is one big of my goals and I don't know which one to choose, there are many nice options.

I'm thinking my choice should be skiing because it's winter. Then look for beach sports in summer.

I found a price comparison with a detailed descriptions for every ski track for the major Bulgarian ski resorts. Hope it will be of help to someone planning a visit there http://bulrent.com/skiing-in-bulgaria/
