    This popular peak was on my TODO list of hikes in Switzerland for a long time and only last Saturday we had the chance to accomplish this “task”. And it is popular believe me, the silhouette of this mountain, which is a shape of a vulcano as seen from lake Thun; but also the great […]

We chose Glärnisch mountain group mostly because Glarus/Linth valley are quickly accessible from Zürich with the Glarner Sprinter. The […]
