The Via Alpina crosses 14 of the most beautiful Alpine passes. Hikers experience a fascinating variety of culture, geology and topography on a journey across six Swiss cantons. Peaceful oases of relaxation alternate with flourishing tourist centres.

Wide roads end in dizzying, breezy ridge trails. There’s no better way to get to know the many facets of Swiss Alpine culture. Discover ultra-modern alps with pipelines and a showroom on the path as well as alp huts where pigs, goats and cows watch an Alpine herdsman making cheese in a copper cauldron over an open fire.

The scene changes from a pleasant family holiday resort to stylish Gstaad. The route is lined with one of the world’s most diverse variety of flora and fauna. Shifts, thrusts, depressions and rockfalls are evidence of an interesting geological structure. Breathtaking panoramas interchange with tiny wayside gems and there are many gastronomic treats in store.
