Hiking amid mighty mountains and natural wonders

On the few foggy days, it is well worth hiking up into the blue to enjoy the sight of snowy peaks jutting out of the sea of fog. Even below the fog line, though, the nature world promises a tour of discovery. Circular routes through diverse alpine landscapes, across beautiful high plateaus and past pristine villages make for memorable experiences, whatever the weather.
