Description

The Dorfweg Randa (Randa village path) promises a restful and soothing walk close to the village. The trail leads initially across snowy white expanses before climbing into the protective forest above the village – an ascent of 250 vertical metres in all. The path is easy, as it is cleared regularly, and the views back down to the village are lovely.

  • Appropriate for children from age 6
Randa (station) - Randa village - Randa (station)

(Hiking time in reverse direction: approx. 1h 30)

We recommend:
  • Good footwear
  • Hiking poles (optional)
  • Warm winter clothing appropriate for the weather
If you look north while underway, you can see also in winter a huge debris cone on the left side of the valley. This is a remnant of a massive rockslide in 1991.

 

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.
