  • Braunwald via Oberblegisee

    The weather forecast for the weekend looked very good but also high temperatures were predicted; so we planned to start the hike early in the morning and if possible to avoid the ascent during the midday. We chose Glärnisch mountain group mostly because Glarus/Linth valley are quickly accessible from Zürich with the Glarner Sprinter. The […]

  • Val Bregaglia

    This rather remote area is best reachable from St Moritz direction therefore if you plan to travel from Zürich you need to consider one overnight sleep in the Engadine region. Decision to explore this part of Switzerland came after checking the weather forecast for the weekend and only few areas in Switzerland were cloud-free. Sleeping […]

    May and June were pretty hectic for us, we’be been almost all the time on the road without having too much time for blogging. Here is a quick roundup: We moved since a while in Opfikon but we didn’t have the excuse to throw a house warming party but in May, together with summer we […]

  • Sardinia

    We spent one week of holidays in Sardinia, more exactly in Dorgali, a city (well … if you can say so) situated in the north-east part of the island. We chose this destination because I read that if you are into mountaineering and climbing you have plenty of outdoor opportunities nearby. However we didn’t want […]

  • Beichle

    That was the first serious hike of the 2011 season. Between Luzern and Interlaken there are some mountain groups that looked appealing to me, meaning they have interesting shapes and ridges . Beichle is one of them and because of its relative small altitude (under 1800m), it was a good target for last weekend, when […]

  • Roggen – Jura

    May, 1 caught us, where else but in the mountains :). The whole weekend wasn’t too good for planning outdoor activities, especially because of a cold weather front which came from west. The forecast for Sunday looked grey and rainy in almost whole Switzerland with some exceptions in western part of it. I looked up […]

  • Bruges

    As Colin Farrell tells us, Bruges “it’s in Belgium”. Last year we had a tentative of going there but a volcano kept us (plus whole Europe) on the ground and eventually this year we made it, so during the Easter miniholiday we visited this lovely, well-preserved medieval city. In this post I will share with […]

  • Bütschelegg

    This is the name of a small mountain (in fact you can call it a hill) which is placed in Bern area and it has great views to the Alpes. We didn’t want to do a high-mountain tour, there is still plenty of snow there, but we wanted to go more for a relaxing walk […]

  • Bisses de Valais

    Bisse is the word used in Valais for the irrigation channels that transport water to the wineyards and orchards. The network spreads on both sides of Rhône and is more than 1400km long. We chose two of these bisses for a day trip with start from Leuk and arrival on the foothills from Crans-Montana. The […]

  • Eggberge

    Sunday it was great weather in the mountains and it was coming after two days of snowfall. But as you can guess the avalanche danger was also high, so we planned our hike accordingly. In the evening before, we chose Flüelen area(Central Switzerland) as a destination and in the morning we were supposed to check […]
