Hiking: Gommer und Furka Höhenweg

Gommer and Furka mountain trail Gommer Höhenweg

The mountain trail of Goms is the only trail in Switzerland that has been awarded the title of "Premium trail" by the German Hiking Association. This trial deserves the title because Goms offers you a high class trail. Panoramic paths lead you past sun-baked Valais villages and picturesque Alps to Oberwald.

Furka-Höhenweg

This rather comfortable trial is followed by an adventure of rock and ice. The Furka mountain trail takes you past the Rhone Glacier in the Gotthard mountains. You cross the Urserental and reach the mountain village of Andermatt after some eventful days.

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.

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.

Tour character

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.
