Tour description

Near the funicular’s summit station starts the pathway to the Föisc peak. The path brings us - after firs, larches and pines forests – throw naturals pastures. On the top of the Föisc peak the look goes from the roundish Piora valley to the white glaciers of the Bedretto valley, from the imposing Gotthard massive to the Rheinwaldhorn peak. The path on the north side will bring us quickly to the Lake Ritom.
