Hiking holidays Gommer mountain trail

Hiking: Gommer und Furka Höhenweg

Valais premium hiking trails

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.

Itinerary

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. 

approx. 4.5 h
approx. 13 km

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.

approx. 5.5 h
approx. 18 km

Tour character

The constant ups and downs along the Gommer mountain trail require good basic fitness. The paths are well developed and easy to walk on - surefootedness is nevertheless necessary.
