Hikers at the Swiss Alps

In the footsteps of the Via Spluga: the most beautiful path across the Swiss Alps

The Romans made their way along this trade route, and today it is one of the oldest mule trails in Europe. The Via Spluga is not only one of the most famous long-distance hiking trails in the Alps, but also leads you to the legendary gorges Viamala and Rofla. The Rhineland and the quiet mountain lakes create an idyllic contrast to the rather barren and rocky landscape of the Swiss mountains. In summer, pleasant temperatures prevail at these altitudes.

Have you got the taste to climb the Swiss Alps? Then go on this long-distance hiking trail!
