A choice of 2 stunning routes today. The official route follows the Bovine Trail which ascends through pine forests, over glacial rivers and across high alpine pastures where the famous ‘Swiss fighting cows’ graze throughout summer. Mid-way, stop off at the Bovine Hut which serves delicious homemade apple cake (along with excellent views over the Swiss Bernese Alps).
The alternative routes head over the challenging Fenetre d’Arpette (2665m). Considered by many as the toughest day on the circuit, the ascent and descent follows a steep, exposed rocky trail across boulder fields and scree slopes. A day of real mountain adventure!
