Bosco Gurin

Coming from the Valais, emigrants settled in the Middle Ages in the small side valley of the Maggia Valley. These settlers, the Walters, did not traverse the valleys but coming from Pomade (Val Formazza), they crossed the mountains. Bosco Gurin, at 1503 meters the highest mountain village in Ticino, is today one of Switzerland’s most charming villages. The picturesque village, founded in 1253 by the settlers, is as beautiful as ever. Its authentic houses are built of stone and wood.

Aletsch Panoramaweg: The Swiss Glacier Trail

Europe's longest glacier is not listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for no reason. The landscape through which this four-hour hike from Bettmerhorn mountain station runs is spectacular. Flagstones make the mountain trail easily accessible and on a panoramic level high above the Aletsch Glacier it leads towards the magical Lake Märjelen.
