Physical 1700m + uphill hike, through varying landscapes from the green forests and waterfalls to the dry yellow rockis and the eternal snows of the glaciers.
Distance 8.5 km
A spruce forest and scenic waterfalls line the mountain trail from the valley station Reusch up to Oldenalp. After the wild and mineral-rich Oldental, comes the Oldensattel, which is very close to the Tsanfleuron Glacier. During the final steep climb of this challenging hike of over five hours, your gaze will naturally fall onto the eternal ice – and will be magically attracted by its beauty. Upon getting to the Oldenhorn (3’122 m), a spectacular panorama consisting of 24 peaks over 4’000 metres of the impressive Alps will open up.
Look for mushrooms in the first third in the forest, marmots in the fields in the second, and the alpine ibex in the rocks for the third!
