Arrival to Bellwald
Bellwald – Reckingen
In the mountain village Bellwald, you start your hike at the Goms mountain trial that takes you along the sunny side of the upper valley of Goms. Characterised by uphill and downhill paths, it ends with a descent to the village of Reckingen.
Reckingen – Oberwald
Many small mountain streams feed the Rhone, which is still called "Rotten" in Goms. The ravines carved by these rivers over the centuries, provide one or the other incline today. Historic mountain villages with wonderful Valais houses greet you from the valley below.
Oberwald – Tiefenbach
You can cut short this difficult stage if desired using public transport. The Furka mountain trail first takes you up to Gletsch, where the innumerable roads wind up to the Grimsel Pass. Further up on the Furka Pass, you can visit the nearby Rhone glacier and hike to the village of Tiefenbach.
Tiefenbach – Andermatt
Pleasant hike on Urschner mountain trail along the rocky south-eastern slopes above Urserental. Views down to Realp and Hospental, the Pass road and historic Furka steam train. Along the way you can see small lakes, alpine flowers, mountain streams and jagged cliffs. Individual departure once you arrive in Andermatt.
Departure or extension
The constant ups and downs along the Gommer mountain trail and the tough ascent to the Furkapass require good basic fitness. The paths are well developed and easy to walk on – surefootedness is nevertheless necessary.
