Adventure vacation in the nature
Summer holidays in the mountains
The summit as the objective of a hike is only of importance to children once they have reached it. Along the way, the trail itself has plenty of exciting surprises in store: Animal tracks can be seen in the soft soil, marmots and chamois that can be observed if you keep very still, there are stones in different colours and shapes, and even petrified squid can be discovered along the Rüfikopf mountain’s geological trails.
