Guided 3-day hut to hut overlooking the Churfisten’s seven peaks

Do you know the famous Churfisten, these magical seven peaks? How about spending a couple of days hiking with them in the background? Discovering multiple valleys, spending 2 nights in mountain huts, ending each day with a gorgeous sunset, and waking up to an even more stunning sunrise? And all that with fun people? If it appeals to you, then you should definitely join this trip!

This trip is led by Celine Kahn, mountain leader.

Guided 3-day hut to hut overlooking the Churfisten’s seven peaks 1

What’s the plan?

Day 1: Ennenda – Murgseehütte

Meet your guide in Ennenda at 09:00. Together we will take the cable car up to Bärenboden and start the hike from there. First day, first valley hopping. We start in the Linth valley and finish in the Murg valley by the famous group of lakes Murgseen. The Murgseehütte, where we spend the evening and the night, is located at 1’817m.

Technical information: 8km – 1’000m ascent – 600m descent

Day 2: Murgseehütte – Spitzmeilenhütte

After an energising breakfast, we start the longest day of the weekend! 16km, almost always above 2’000m, walking past various small mountain lakes, crossing a mountain pass at nearly 2’300m, overlooking the stunning seven Churfisten and ending at the beautiful mountain hut Spitzmeilenhütte at 2’087m where we spend the night. The sunset and sunrise from there are absolutely breathtaking!

Technical information: 16km – 1’050m ascent – 800m descent

Day 3: Spitzmeilenhütte – Schönhalden

Last but not least, on Sunday we start with a long and gentle downhill through the Schils valley with some parts in the forest, and then climb again on the other side of the valley, again mainly through the forest, until we reach the beautiful Schönhalden hotel where we can take a cable car down to spare our leg muscles of another 750m elevation loss. We end the day in Flumserberg Saxli where we can catch a bus to return home.

Technical information: 12.5km – 700m ascent – 1’300m descent
