Via ferrata Gantrisch

Via ferrata Gantrisch – Challenging in places, with vertical and slightly overhanging sections (categorised as a KS 4 climb). You do need to be quite fit, and certainly sure-footed with a good head for heights. Approach via the Gurnigel water divide, the start is just below the Leitern Pass. Six hours (there and back) from the water divide. You can hire a via ferrata set from the Gurnigel mountain inn.

Romantic little Gantrisch lake

Mountain lakes – Little mountain lake at 1578 m. Until just a few years ago, the Gantrischseeli was almost entirely silted up, but now thanks to some very committed volunteers it is once again a rewarding place to come to for a short mountain walk. Start from the Untere Gantrischhütte at 1510 m. The path takes you past cows and goats into the nature conservation area around the lake. Don't forget your binoculars for spying out chamois!

Gägger walkway: Storm-damaged timber

Sehenswürdigkeiten / Aktivitäten – Pristine wilderness: At the end of 1999, ‘Lothar’, the storm of the century, destroyed large expanses of forest in the "Gägger" forest reserve. The buckled storm-damaged timber and the forest scars that are slowly undergoing revegetation can all be viewed from a raised wooden walkway: enjoyment for all nature lovers! Here, visitors will gain unique insights into burgeoning nature and the natural development of an area subjected to storm damage.
