Find the treasure

Posted on

Last week at the summer school we made a small trip. The theme of the trip was to use the map for field orientation. But because we are still small and we want everything to be a play we have discovered the route using the clues. A cross made out of trees, a banquet in […]

Zermatt and Matterhorn

Posted on

Although it’s already mid-May, the snow is still high, it seems to have fallen somewhat more than usual. In these conditions, we have few trekking options in the area, in fact 2: we can climb up to Riffelalp one of the Gornegrat train stations or visit Zmutt. We chose both. Getting to Riffelalp has nothing […]

Kleine_Scheidegg

Kleine Scheidegg is the train station where the final climb to Jungfraujoch (3454m)begins, the terminal station of the famous cogwhell train. Above that point, the train stops only at the Eiger glacier and then enters the deep of the mountain. The train inaugurated in 1912 is probably one of Switzerland’s most famous tourist attractions. Of […]

Gimmelwald and Murren

Posted on

Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau are the three major peaks that dominate the Langwald valley. Both the peaks and the huge glaciers that descend from their top can be seen best on the left side of the valley. With this plan we also started our journey. I took the cabin from Lauterbrunen to Gruetschalp. From here […]

Stechelberg and Wengen

The last village on the Lengwald Valley, Stechelberg is located just 20km away from Interlaken, was our home for a week in May 2018. Located in a typical U-shaped glacial valley, the village has a special charm. The valley walls have been “cut” by glaciers so abruptly that both sides of the slope are virtually […]

Grindelwald – first peak

Posted on

In Heinrich Harrer’s book The White Spider (a chronicle of the first ascents of the Eiger’s northern wall) I first heard of Grindelwald, a small village located at an altitude of 1034m in the Bernin Alps. Ever since I’ve read the book I wanted to get here and look up the mountain for traces of […]

Cozia, Cernei Mountains

Posted on

When we talk about the Cerna Mountains, we think first of all on canyons, caves and limestone peaks and probably on the well-known and picturesque road situated on the Cerna valley, already classic hiking destinations. However the mountains are only partially visited by tourists. Probably to this situation has contributed the lack of marked trails […]
