Hiking & nature

Emmental–Entlebuch high-altitude trail

Mettlenalp–Fontanne–Obstaldenegg–Schüpfheim (12.3 km, 4 hours)

You hike along narrow but easily negotiable paths through forests and Alpine meadows. You take the mountain trail from the Emmental's gorges and ravines across the cantonal border and into the Entlebuch UNESCO biosphere reserve. Another short climb from Fontanne to Obstaldenegg is rewarded with views of the Bernese and Central Swiss Alps in the distance.
