The hiking tour’s highlight is the crossing of the Sätteli Ridge between Tällistock and Sättelistöckleni. While the gentle ascent from Engstlenalp opens up magnificent vistas of the Melchsee region, on the descent to the Tälli Restaurant and Mountain House, the Gadmen Valley and the historic Susten Pass road come into view. Here the Gadmer Dolomites present themselves in all their imposing glory.
The Goms is situated where the Rhone river is still called the Rotten and the river resembles more of a wide stream than a wide river. The wide valley floor in the Upper Goms is not only suitable for agriculture, it is also a wonderful place for sport's enthusiasts to show off their skills.
The hills and mountains around the upper Tösstal (Töss valley) are eminently suited for extended hiking and bike tours. Astoundingly beautiful upland routes with views across the Alps, the Zurich Oberland, Lake Zurich, the Greifensee and the Pfäffikersee are a characteristic of entire region.
Portes du Soleil: the name stands for cross-border, unbounded skiing fun. 14 skiing areas - 8 of them in France and 6 in Switzerland - with over 200 lifts and cable-/railways combine to make the largest single skiing area in the world. In summer things are much quieter here, but even in the warmer months there is spectacular sport. Word has spread in the biking community about the massive bike park with its many downhill slopes and tricky tracks, and it is becoming very popular. Nevertheless, there is room for walkers too.
