Napf – a superlative mountain hike

Lüderenalp–Napf–Mettlenalp (13.3 km / 4 hours 50 minutes)

One of the most popular and lovely walks in the Emmental is the mountain hike, offering view after view, from the Lüderenalp up to the Napf and back down into the valley to the Mettlenalp (13 km, walking time approximately 4 hours 50 minutes). This varied route follows a narrow path close to the ridge, taking you past rustic mountain taverns. Throughout the walk, you’ll enjoy a stunning panoramic view of mountains stretching from the Alps to the Jura range.
