Description

Sometimes the switch from stressful daily routine to restful mountain holiday happens all too quickly. Holidays are all about relaxing, so a day spent acclimatising on the valley floor is well spent. This gentle walk through forest and across pastures around Randa is ideal.

  • Appropriate for children from age 4
  • Beautiful view from valley floor towards the Klein Matterhorn
Randa (station) - Forststrasse - Randa (station)
We recommend:
  • Good footwear
  • Hiking poles (optional)
  • Clothing suitable for the weather (always carry a waterproof)
Visit the chapel “Wildi”. Well suited for families.

 

Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre at Randa station.

  • Plan every mountain tour carefully and adapt to participants’ fitness level as well as the weather and season.
  • Weather conditions can change quickly in the mountains. Appropriate clothing is therefore essential, along with adequate supplies of food and water. In uncertain weather, turn back in good time.
  • Inform others of planned route, and whenever possible avoid going alone.
  • Do not leave the marked routes; do not venture onto glaciers without a mountain guide.
  • It is forbidden to walk on the ski pistes.
  • Please be considerate to other walkers and to plants and animals.
  • Take note of the warning signs drawing attention to the constant danger in river beds and along watercourses below dams and reservoirs.
