The Walsa-Weg (Walensee-Sarganserland-Trail) offers hikers the chance to get to know the many faces of Heidiland. At an average height of 1000 m, the route links the many high-level terraces of the the Flumserberg and the Amden Riviera. These afford unique views of eastern Switzerland’s mountain world, the Rhine Valley, Sarganserland and the deep-blue Walensee. Falknis, Alviergruppe, Gonzen and Churfirsten form an impressive rocky backdrop on the horizon.

You experience the primal ruggedness of the Hinterberg on a mainly good network of trails. The beautiful, protected moorland at Chapfensee near Vermol stands in contrast to the bleak, aridity of Kleinberg. It’s a pleasure to hike through the sun-soaked fields of Flumserberg, flourishing in both an agricultural and touristic sense, then begins the descent to Walensee. After a boat trip to the opposite shore, you think you’re in Mediterranean Quinten in Ticino, before climbing to the last sunny terrace and the hotspot of Amden.
