The Swiss Path: The Swiss William Tell Path

Discover all 26 cantons in two days - on foot! Hike the countryside along the Swiss Path around Lake Uri in a 2-day swoop. A special portion is the three-hour panoramic hike starting in Rütli. The hiker climbs 850 steps to Seelisberg, sought-after for its bathing lake, and hikes past the famous vantage point and back to Bauen with its Mediteranean ambiance. Arrival and return are accomplished via romantic boat rides.

Pure hiking pleasure - the trail that is dedicated to Switzerland is just as diverse as the country itself.
