Gemmi – historic pass

The Gemmi Train climbs the steep Gemmi face to the wonderful mountain world of the Gemmi Region, which is famous for its rich traditions. The Gemmi Train was built in 1957 and has since then transported many a guest to an elevation of 2,350 meters.

Already the Romans trod this path from the main Valais valley to the north. The historic pass crossing unites Leukerbad with Kandersteg – without roads, instead mountain rail.

Pizol – single summit and five lakes

From mountain train to mountain train, from lake to lake - the Five-Lakes-Hike on Mt Pizol is a classic and is considered one of Switzerland's most beautiful high Alpine tours. Pizol means high peak in Romansh but these days there is luckily a modern aerial cable car that brings one up to the 2227-meter-high summit.

Two gondola railways make their way up from Bad Ragaz or Wangs to the edge of the forest, from where you enjoy far-reaching views over the Rhine Valley to Lake Constance – and chairlifts carrying you to the Pizol ridge if you wish to venture further afield.

Lauchernalp – sunny terrace

The Lötschental has for a long time been the end of the world and so has remained wonderfully unspoiled. A mountain climbers' Eldorado opens up from the Lauchernalp onwards.

Above the treeline, on a terrace created by a glacier, you soon discover the sun-spoilt Alps of the Lötschen Valley: Krummenalp, Hockenalp, Lauchernalp, Weritzalp and Tellialp.
