Guided weekend hike overlooking the Churfisten’s seven peaks, with night in a hut
Do you know the famous Churfirsten, these magical seven peaks? How about hiking with them in the background for a weekend, spending the night in a mountain hut, ending the day with a gorgeous sunset, and waking up to an even more stunning sunrise? If this appeals to you, then you should definitely join this trip!
This trip is led by Celine Kahn, mountain leader.
What’s the plan?
Day 1: Flumserberg, Tanneboden – Spitzmeilenhütte
We meet at Flumserberg, Tannenboden at 09:30. The first part of the day is perfect to warm up: a gentle uphill on easy terrain all the way to the gorgeous mountain lakes Seeben, from where we can see the ridges that await us and the Churfirsten on the other side. We then hike on the ridge all the way to the Zigerfurgglen pass at 2’000m. Once we reach the pass, a beautiful balcony trail takes us all the way to the beautiful mountain hut Spitzmeilenhütte at 2’087m, where we spend the night. The sunset and sunrise from there are absolutely breathtaking!
Technical information: 15km – 1’100m ascent – 400m descent
Day 2: Spitzmeilenhütte – Schönhalden
Wake up to the sunrise and the stunning views! After an energising breakfast, 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, traversing forests and pastures, 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
To join this event, you need to be a very fit hiker, able to climb more than 1000m in one day.
