The Gemmi Pass is the oldest link between Valais and the Bernese Alps – and the heart of the ViaCook, a long-distance journey following the trail of the British tourism pioneer Thomas Cook.
The Rhine Route follows the great river from its source to Basel. The stretch along Lake Constance is especially scenic, leading past orchards and castles on its way to the Rhine Falls.
This spectacular long-distance hike links 14 of the most beautiful Alpine passes in Graubünden, Ticino and Valais. You can comfortably tackle the trail in sections: this is one of the finest.
