High above the Leventina valley

High above the Leventina valley – Pleasant walk along the Strada alta from Airolo to Osco

The 45 km walk along the Strada alta (old road) presents a very different picture of the traffic-plagued Leventina valley from that seen from one of the infamous queues for the St Gotthard Tunnel. Flower-strewn meadows, bubbling mountain streams and pretty villages are the main features of the steep left-hand side of the upper Leventina valley. From above, the gigantic man-made structures of the road and railway are fascinating. No less impressive is the mountain world of the Leventina.

Panorama trails – Circular walk with wonderful views around the Atzmännig

The people at Atzmännig AG at the top of the Goldinger Valley have created a real paradise for children, a playground to make children's eyes shine. A little higher up, you can have fun on a summer sledging run down through the green meadows. You are surrounded on all sides by the wonderful scenery of the foothills to the Alps.

Panorama trails – Varied walk from Sissach over the Sissacher Fluh and the Schleifenberg to Liestal

The mighty and imposing Sissacher Fluh is the emblem of Sissach, dominating the valley below. The climb up from the main town of this region takes just over an hour, and the view from the rocky summit is magnificent, extending from the Vosges and the Jura right round to the Alps.

There are some fantastic vantage points on the walk over from Baden to Brugg. The thread running through this short but varied walk is water.
