Wildlife observation on the Niederhorn
Niederhorn mountain is an important habitat for many native wild animals. The early morning is the perfect time to observe them.
Why not follow their tracks in the company of a local wildlife expert? He will lead you to the ibex colonies and explain the characteristics of these creatures, so adept at scrambling. If you’re lucky, you might also encounter chamois, marmots and golden eagles. The wildlife observation tour lasts approximately six hours including four hours of pure walking.
