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.
Travel comfortably by public transport to the starting point of your alpine safari.
