Hikes for everyone

The hiking season has begun. Substantial snowmelt in May made it possible to start mountain hikes early June.

To the mountains

We strongly recommend a visit to the mountains this summer. Choose between lazy days by an idyllic lake or whitewater adventures. A long or a short hike, with or without a fishing rod.
