Napf – a superlative mountain hike
Lüderenalp–Napf–Mettlenalp (13.3 km / 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.
