Grindelwald claims that it owns Europe’s longest sledging track – well, in fact it doesn’t matter. What matters is: sledging in Grindelwald is a great experience.
Winter is normally not the best time for packrafting – the rivers are low on water and it’s quite cold compared to nice summertime trips. But winter can also be “special” – hence we decided recently to do a quick late-afternoon packrafting session on the Lake Züri. A similar trip we did years ago – check it out here.
I already hiked in the Saentis area during winter and summer – this time we focused on the area around the Seealpsee and Ebenalp. This is a very popular area during the good-weather weekends and only an hour drive from Zurich.
This valley is a gemstone at the southern part of the Zurich Lake. It offers plenty of nice possibilities to do easy and more challenging dayhikes.
As part of a recent roadtrip, we hiked the Great Aletsch Glacier Panorama Hike in one day. This is a must-do in Switzerland which provides amazing views on the Great Aletsch Glacier.
The Sidelhorn (2764m) is an easy mountain to climb especially if you start from the Grimselpass (2164m) like we did. So it’s just 600 meters to climb up and you will get reimbursed with amazing views over the Alps.
We did it again – because it is indeed a nice trip: hiking from Elm over the Segnapass down to the Vorderrhein and then packraft until the Hinterrhein meets the Vorderrhein and finally becomes the Rhein as we know it. Be aware that the Martinsloch is part of the UNESCO world heritage.
