Details

Description

A leisurely, short hike through a valley with an eventful history. From the mining area (hence the name Val Mingèr – Valley of the Miners) to a nature reserve left to its own devices. In addition to the good observation opportunities for deer and chamois, the hike offers a beautiful view from Sur il Foss.

 

Note: Dogs are not allowed in the Swiss National Park, not even on a leash. For more information and all protections, see nationalpark.ch/schutzbestimmungen.

Geheimtipp

A visit to the Museum Schmelzra with the bear exhibition is very worthwhile. The experience-oriented exhibition gives an insight into the past, the way of life, the biology and the return of the brown bears. It is particularly suitable for children.

Sicherheitshinweis

The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions, the current weather conditions and weather forecasts must be observed before the start of the tour. This hike requires an elementary alpine experience, orientation skills, mountain boots are highly recommended.
