Experience the alpine-orienteering at 1950 m above sea level, between Niederhorn and Vorsass. There is a trail for every age and ability. Searching for clues and good orientation skills are needed. The orienteering hike is great fun for all generations. Grandmothers knowledge could help with the decisions needed to get to the finish and the natural orientation of kids boosts their confidence.
You start at the old mountain station on the Niederhorn and follow the signals. The purpose-made maps show you the way. It’s an interesting get together and you will find that it’s worth listening to each other. All 3 trails lead from the Niederhorn to Vorsass. This hike is free of charge and you can find the maps and stamp cards by the old mountain station.
If you successfully finish a whole trail you can leave your map in an urn at the old middle station. The lucky participant wins a prize at the end of the summer season.
Why not try an orienteering with the whole family? Even the smallest can be part of the rabbit-trail and learn in a playful manner to be out in nature. Grab our OL card and off you go...
The deer-trail needs a few more skills to find the posts; it is therefore slightly more challenging than the rabbit trail. Suitable for families, kids and grandparents who will help each other to find the right way.
This one is for the professionals. Who’s orientation is the best and who can interpret the symbols correctly to find the posts. Carry on with the purpose-made map of the Niederhorn, it won’t be boring.
We wish you good luck with completing one of the three trails!
