Alpine Walking by Mount Rigi.

Mount Rigi is the Queen of the mountains due to its characteristic shape. From up high you can get views of Pilatus and many many deep blue lakes in Central Switzerland. This family walk takes you from one mountain hut to another. You sleep on hay in cosy family rooms and enjoy the hospitality way up high in the little huts.

Upon arrival in Brunnen, you will have wonderful views of Lake Urner and the mighty Bürgenstock mountain. You will stay at Family Bucheli’s farm in a hay dormitory overnight.
