Evolving Alps Hike
Leaving the end of the Kander valley, you will venture into the Gasterntal, a wide expansive glacial valley. You will spend half a day discovering how this breathtaking scenery was formed by giant continents crashing together and by the mighty Kanderfirn - one of the largest glaciers in Europe.
