Hike around Crestasee Lake

Rate this Adventure Switzerland Crestasee

Added by

It's an amazing adventure, because it is easily accessible. It has many amazing spots for photography and enjoying nature. If the day is to hot, you can jump into the refreshing cold water of the lake.

The hike isn't very intense or long. You just get out of the car walk through a forest, on a small path, go past a little waterfall, over a deep canyon with a river at the bottom of it. The river has a very strong blue color. After that you can go around the entire lake, it's wild and sometimes the forest is dense. 

We can recommend this short hike, if you want to get to amazing spots quickly, but also want to experience the beautiful nature of the Swiss Alps. It takes about 1.5h.

Hike from Bristen to Sedrun via the Gotthard Tunnel

Switzerland / Bristen (Talstation Golzernbahn)

You start this hike at the Golzern-Talstation in the small town of Bristen in Canton Uri. As it is a point-to-point hike, I recommend to use public transportation.
