Best of the Uri Alps: A fjord-like lake, glorious peaks and sustainable tourismHiking

Best of the Uri Alps: A fjord-like lake, glorious peaks and sustainable tourism

star-5
You will spend an unforgettable day in breathtaking mountain scenery, with a dedicated and knowledgable guide, who will tailor the itinerary to all your wishes and needs. Access to 'secret' spots of an area with no mass tourism, but with centuries old traditions and way of life and where we will mainly encounter locals and swiss tourists. I will be able to answer all your questions about local customs and ancient way of half nomadic agriculture, but also about life in Switzerland, History, Geography and modern issues like effects of climate change and the impressive infrastructure of the alpine crossings - the amount of walking can be totally fine tuned in terms of length and steepness. I can find something short or long for anyone. (in case you have a rental car I can also drive you places normally not accessible) ***** In short: a well travelled local guide will take you places where the locals go and I hope I will pass my love for the Alps on to you, my guests
