The Viamala Hike we did some weeks ago was amazing – delivering exactly what various reports have promised. It’s definitely recommended – and not crowded at all except for the main part where you need to pay an entry fee (4 CHF / person).
The weather forecast was not very promising – but we still got up early and did the circle over the “Mittagflue” peak close to the town of Wimmis, Switzerland. It was worth it – even with quite bad weather conditions, the hike was amazing and I cannot imagine how great the views must be with sunny weather.
We had a couple of hours left before the dark was supposed to set in – hence, we decided to climb the snowy peak of the Bäderhorn in a couple of hours. It ended up a little bit more complicated than we thought.
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.
