The Via Capricorn leads across the area of the Safien-Rheinwald ibex colony. On the 2nd you walk through Safiental, which is characterised by the Walser culture. You will find barns burned brown by the sun, solitary located hamlets and tranquility.

Author’s recommendation

On the way a visit to the Spensa, a self-service shop with domestic products in Safien Platz, is worthwhile. In Camana there is a local history museum, which is open every 2ndSunday in summer. At the Turahus there is the Turra exhibition barn, which provides information about the Safier barns (characterised by the Walser culture).
