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.
It was 2012 when we spent a short weekend hiking around the area of the Rheinwaldhorn in Switzerland.
It’s good to have friends in Lucerne – because from there it’s just a short trip with the car to one of the dozens small but amazing hiking possibilities which basically surround the city.
Back in 2017 (and also in 2013), we packrafted the Reuss river from Bremgarten to Baden which is indeed a nice trip that I can recommend. This time, we spent one day on the Reuss and rafted from a place called “Root” (no joking – close to Lucerne) down to Bremgarten.
