It took two hours of leisurely strolling downhill to reach the lake where, thankfully, a bus was provided to return us to the car park.

Unfortunately it rained buckets for three of the four days we spent there; fortunately we chose a hostel that has geothermal heating so being forced to stay indoors, relax, and enjoy the hot spa pool was no difficulty.
