Tour description

Hiking through the outskirts of Solothurn to a wild and romantic canyon with a chapel and hermitage.
A multifaceted hiking tour: It begins in the heart of Solothurn and takes you through outlying areas to the romantic wilderness of a canyon blessed with a chapel and hermitage, and then on a gentle trail along the foot of the Jurassic Mountains to your destination, Grenchen, the watch city.
While you benefit on the first part of the hiking tour from the cool temperature in the canyon, on the other stages of the tour you will enjoy a magnificent view of the Mittelland, of the Aare River
meandering through the Valley, and of the Alps in the background.
