Far away from hectic everyday life, you will find one of Lenk’s most beautiful mountain walks. Taking a good five hours to complete, the circular mountain trail to Iffigenalp leads you past Lake Iffig, a pristine blue mountain lake. Iffigenalp, the walk’s end point, lies peaceful and idyllic in the upland valley of the Gelten-Iffigen nature reserve at 1,584 metres above sea level.
Busalpin makes it possible to reach this walking region by public transport in summer, as these routes were previously accessible only to private vehicles. The bus runs only in summer, and only at the weekends during the early season.
There are of course many other remarkable walks, which you can find out more about in the guidebook or the interactive summer map.
