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.
At the mountain station (3454 m), simply walk through the tunnel and out onto the Jungfraufirn.
In less than two hours the hiker moves between two worlds that are geographically close, but historically and culturally completely different.
This easy hike is greatly enjoyed by the entire family. The leisurely walk leads through shady forests, past gushing mountain brooks, and across beautiful pastures and meadows up to Alp Spärra.
