Hike along for 4 hours from Fuerenalp to Engelberg and enjoy amazing Swiss nature.


Hiking along water stream and waterfalls high up 1800m (5905 feet) above the sea level.
This hike offers stunning views along with peaceful meadows and water running over the rocks down to the Steinbach, bringing you deep into the mountains away from the tourist crowds, giving the opportunity to see or even touch cows feeding on beautiful green fields watching over a valley full of waterfalls.

This is personally my most favourite hike as it is very rewarding without much effort, yet delivering all you want from Swiss hike.

The starting point is reached by a comfortable gondola ride. The hike is quite flat but don't be mistaken the views are amazing! In about half of the tour, we can take a break in a local restaurant where you can refresh yourself and taste some Swiss specialities.

The hike takes 4 hours done in a relaxed pace, allowing to take enough picture breaks :)
Fitness level is easy to medium due to bit narrow path at the end of the hike and descending finish.
