Hiking: Schwyzer Tal- & Gipfeltour

The royal hike of central Switzerland

The Great Mythen, the Rigi and the deep blue Lake of Uri form a mountain panorama that is unrivalled worldwide.

A scenery like painted and perfectly suited for an unforgettable hiking tour. On high-altitude paths, the Schwyz valley & summit tour leads you to the most beautiful vantage points and panoramic hikes in this region.

You will stay overnight in idyllic mountain inns, enjoy the clear mountain air and experience the unspoilt nature of this region. Culinary highlights provide additional strength for your eventful hiking days in Canton Schwyz.


On the Schwyzer Höhenweg you will conquer the Gnipen and Wildspitz. These two peaks are less well-known than the Rigi, but no less scenic. On your hike you  ill be rewarded with wonderful views of the Schwyz mountain and lake landscape. If you take it easy, shorten the tour from Sattel-Ägeri by taking the cable car up to Mostelberg.
