Lake Toma - Source of the Rhine

A calm lake lies near the Oberalp Pass. This lake's water flows clear and fresh into the valley. The Tomasee (Lake Toma) is considered to be the source of the Rhine. And it is only here that the river that flows through four countries can still be crossed with a single step.

Lake Toma is regarded as the source of the Rhine, and this is the only place where the river that traverses four countries can be crossed with one step. The hike starts on the Oberalp Pass and crosses the valley southwards (with almost no variation in height); then it climbs 350m to the enchanted mountain lake.

Rafting on the Vorderrhein

The popular rafting tour takes you through the impressive Vorderrhein canyon, one of the most popular white water stretches in the Alps.

Combe Grède

A huge crevice vertically divides the ridge over St-Imier into two parts – the Combe Grède. The craggy cliff faces are inhabited by chamois and marmots, even pellegrine falcons and wood grouse can be seen. The 14-km-long and steep walk from Villeret through the Combe Grède direct to the Chasseral is very demanding, takes a good 6 hours and should only be undertaken by experienced hikers. The start and end point can be reached using public transportation.
