The mountain tour starts in Sumvitg and follows the left flank of the valley up to Brigels. High above the valley basin of the Surselva, the Senda Sursilvana meanders alongside the mountain flanks. En route we come across steep mountain streams that later flow into the Vorderrhein. The hiking tour leads through picturesque villages in Graubünden.
The historic pass walk from Leukerbad into the Bernese Oberland via the Gemmi pass can, without exaggeration, be described as the classic among classics. A sense of expectation accompanies the view upwards from Leukerbad to the gigantic rocky peaks of the Gemmi region. Wherever can there be space for a path, is what the justified questions seems to be.
The strong fragrance of mimosas, well-tended Palm Gardens and simply unsurpassable views of the deep-blue Lago (Lake) Maggiore - these are the distinguishing attributes of this hike. The tour is a typical spring hike. The temperatures are not yet too high, but the natural progressionof spring has already reached the stage where conditions are ideal for a wonderful day inSwitzerland's sunshine capital. And while comfortably sipping a cappuccino at the Piazza of Ascona, you can let the day go by in a delightfully leisurely fashion.
In less than two hours the hiker moves between two worlds that are geographically close, but historically and culturally completely different.
