Beverin Nature Park

The 2998-meter Piz Beverin, located in the middle of Beverin Nature Park, dominates the park’s scenery. Majestic, serene, frugal, persevering and peaceful – these are the characteristics defining this habitat of the capricorn (Rhaeto-Romanic for ibex). The park extends from Thusis to Schams and includes large parts of the Safien Valley.

The 2998-meter Piz Beverin, located in the middle of Beverin Nature Park, dominates the park’s scenery. Majestic, serene, frugal, persevering and peaceful – these are the characteristics defining this habitat of the capricorn (Rhaeto-Romanic for ibex). The park covers 370 square kilometres from Thusis to Schams and includes large parts of the Safien Valley.

Following the Doubs: The Swiss Water Trail

France to one side and Switzerland to the other, with a river running through the middle: The Doubs. Its long, ruggedly picturesque valley is virtually uninhabited and being a nature reserve it is even more of a paradise for fishermen and hikers. The riverside path between Soubey and St. Ursanne opens up a truly original part of Switzerland. Through almost untouched riverscape, it runs past fish taverns and swimming areas.

15 kilometres of meditative hiking pleasure and one of Switzerland's most beautiful "water trails" run between Soubey and St-Ursanne.

Gruyère Pays-d'Enhaut Regional Nature Park

This park is located in the cantons of Fribourg (Freiburg) and Vaud, between the shores of Lake Geneva, La Gruyère (Greyerzerland) and Pays D'Enhaut (Saanenland). The entire region is defined by an extraordinary harmony between man, culture and nature.

The park is located in the cantons of Fribourg and Vaud, between the shores of Lake Geneva, La Gruyère and Pays d'Enhaut. Alpine dairy farming and agriculture are among its typical features.

Illgraben-Bhutan Bridge

Erosion caused the mountain to collapse and the vast, pale yellow and reddish rock basin to form, which becomes bigger every year. From the Grabenrad or the Illhorn (2,716 m) there are "fear inspiring" yet stunning views down into the Rhone valley.

Erosion has created an immense, pale yellow rock basin that is growing larger every year. It is well worth admiring this phenomenon of nature. The circular route follows the (mostly dry) bed of the Wildbach to the Bhutan Bridge and the Güetji viewing pulpit. Return to Susten along the other side of the trench.
