Misused as the motif for countless countryside calendars, famous due to thousands of films, emblems and Swiss stickers and labels, but despite or perhaps because of all of this, the Matterhorn continues to remain the archetypal mountain. Actually seeing the world-famous pyramid of rock in front of you is always a fascinating experience.
The Aletsch glacier is the largest in the Alps and has recently been marked out by UNESCO as a world nature site. What a fantastic location for a tour! The journey itself is your goal - all the way up to the frozen water. You'll need to tackle thirteen curves on the path through the larch forests up to the Fiescheralp.
Behind the steep rock walls of Calanda massif a historical pass lurks over Kunkelspass. The pass connects different Maiensäss (typical farmhosues), going over to Reichenau, where Vorder and Hinterrhein join. Away from the tracks alpine marmots run over fertile meadows.
Pays d'Enhaut with its rich, flowering meadows, and its dark green pine forests, is tailor-made for nature sports. The bike trails are very demanding in part and may provoke some cramping in your calves. The tour up to Lac de l'Hongrin is short, but it will surprise you with some tricky slopes.
