Entlang der jungen Rhone

Entlang der jungen Rhone

Tour description

The more or less even pathway Rottenweg, alongside young Rhone river is perfect to explore Obergoms. At one point across wide meadows, at another point through sparse forest the Rottenweg leads from village to village. This pleasant hiking path therefore really invites to discover gastronomy of Obergoms people. Also buggies or bikes are often seen on Rottenweg pathway. A delightful path for young and old, junior and senior alike.

The Rottenweg can be followed at one’s convenience as far as Ernen..
