4 Days Hiking in Switzerland

Don’t we all sometimes look for a quiet place, an opportunity to slow down, let our thoughts flow and enjoy nature? Let me anticipate: a few days of hiking in Switzerland is the ideal activity to do so! 

4 days hiking in Switzerland

In the busy city life we sometimes forget how incredibly beautiful the Swiss mountains are. Paradise is not far, from Zurich you are within 2 hours in the middle of Graubuenden with various hiking trails and adventures. 

Kesch-Trek in Grabuenden

The kesch-trek is a four-day hiking tour in Graubuenden. You will sleep in SAC huts, far away from civilization. In the evening there is delicious food served by the hut keeper, cards are played, laughed and people talk about God and the world. At night, the endlessly beautiful sky full of stars appears, it is worth to go and have a look!


The tour is safe, but requires a good physical condition for medium to long hikes in the high mountains.
