It was a lovely hike on a sunny day. went with 3 kids age 5,6 and 8 and is totally doable, if kids are used to hike longer distances. we also had a swim in one of these lakes - cold but a great experience.

I would say that this hike is for more experienced hikers - it took us almost 6 hours to complete, and in half of the route, we had to climb very steep roads. Beware that the ski-lifts close at 16.00 so you have to hurry...More

This 4-5 hour long hike is perfectly suited for experienced and non-experienced hikers alike. If you are in Switzerland for a short time and want to experience the mountains properly, this is your go-to place. Do not forget to bring a Camera (and a jacket)....More

Our third trip to Switzerland....this is a real gem of a hike. Three gondola rides from Wangs to Pizolhutte. Two of the gondolas are open ski lift chairs. We had an absolutely gorgeous sun filled short-sleeve day all the way, but make sure if rain...More

The 5-lake classic hike in Pizol is an incredible opportunity to experience mountains up close: magnificent mountain views, steep slopes, azure blue water lakes, rock formations, the incredible silence of mountains on one side and goats and cows grassing completely at ease in the high...More
