Wild animal observation (guided)

Every Thursday from June to September a local game specialist will take you to the ibex colonies

The mountain railway will bring you comfortably to the Niederhorn where you start early on Thursday morning. Just in time to see the real locals of the mountains – the animals-wake up. Mountain goats, Ibex, marmots and the king of the sky – the golden eagle – will reward you for rising early. You will be guided by a local animal specialist. We recommend bringing your camera. During the observation we will have six CL Companion binoculars from Swarovski Optik available. The guided tour lasts approximately 6 hours (4 hours hiking time). Please bring a picnic. The tour finishes at station Vorsass. Why not enjoy the sunrise on the Niederhorn and stay in an accommodation in the Berghaus? Enjoy a nice dinner the night before and experience the sunrise and early start on the Niederhorn.
