The cool, damp climate in the trough-shaped upland valley of the Biber led to the formation of many moors, including Switzerland's largest remaining moorland (over 100 hectares). This is surrounded by an exceptionally rich variety of habitats: remains of mountain pine upland moors, spruce forest groves, peat bogs, low moors and the winding river Biber with its pastureland. The local funding agencies and Pro Natura both campaign for the preservation of this upland moor.
Various excursions offer a chance to discover all of the fascinating ecosystems. The moorland path is also highly recommended: here, visitors can hike through six-foot ferns, bathe and enjoy a barbecue in a beautiful bay on the Biber and discover forests where they can listen to the animals, play hide-and-seek or practice their slalom technique.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
