The Saas-Almagell Adventure Trail offers an exciting variation to standard hiking trails and is perfect for adventurous families, the young, and the young at heart! The main attractions of this tour are the two hanging bridges (60 and 40 m long), as well as the gorgeous views over Saas-Almagell and the Saas Valley’s 4,000-metre peaks. The trail also includes some well-secured rocky passages. Please be aware that this trail is only suitable for sure-footed hikers with a good head for heights, and that children from approx. six or seven years of age should be accompanied by an adult at all times. The trail is not suitable for dogs.
The trail begins at the mountain station of the Furggstalden chairlift and sets off in a northerly direction through the woods and around the Almagellerhorn. It then continues through the Hohlerch and Mittli Flüe areas until it reaches the Almagelleralp. Hikers ascend via the trail from Saas-Almagell to Furggstalden. It is possible to cut the tour short by taking the path back down to Saas-Almagell from Mittli Flüe. From the Almagelleralp mountain hotel hikers can continue the tour either by crossing the Almagell High-Altitude Trail to Kreuzboden or taking the Almagell Valley Trail to the Almagell mountain hut. Those who have had enough adventure for one day, however, can return to Mitti Flüe and take the path that descends over Spissgrabe back down to Saas-Almagell, thus creating a nice circular hike.
Alternative A: Those who have had enough adventure for one day, however, can return to Mitti Flüe and take the path that descends over Spissgrabe back down to Saas-Almagell, thus creating a nice circular hike.
Pay attention to the cableway timetable.
Make sure you plan enough time for the hike and be sure to wear sturdy walking shoes and good outdoor clothing.
The trail is not suitable for dogs or small children. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
