    You climb up a mountain slope, where the trail gets steeper and steeper. The path shows up in different characters. From the alp road to the ridge path, with a beautiful view of the mountain landscape. Where the green crest breaks off steeply, the obligatory summit cross awaits you. Nevertheless, it is not the summit, which is why you go on an ascent of Blasenka. It's the total hike that makes this tour so worthwhile. Especially the variety makes this tour to who it is. Just fantastic!

    Easy hike. Great for any fitness level. Easily-accessible paths. Suitable for all skill levels.

    A walk to Seewaldsee is worthwhile in every season and in every weather. It can be reached in about 35 minutes from Fontanella / Saw. The easy walk leads through real, austere Walser landscape. Embedded in meadows lies the small lake. Since the water supply is low, the lake at this altitude (1200 m) shows exceptionally favorable temperatures, which in summer - even on a warm rainy day - tempt to swim. And of course the beautiful surroundings invites you to linger.Conclusion: Perfect walks for the family, with a dog or just with the best friend.

On the way there are great places to stop for refreshments and at times a great view of the Große Walsertal and the surrounding mountain landscape.Since this tour is very long, you should place value on good shoes and start early. So nothing stands in the way of a perfect hiking day!

    The tour around the Klippern belongs to the category: panoramic and varied round trip, in which you also have to do without the physical well-being.Start is the Uga mountain station in Damüls, from where you walk over the Ugaalp at the Damüls Mittagsspitze past. It follows a short descent to Wannenalpe, past the ski tunnel to Kahnisalpe. Here you can treat yourself to a deserved rest.

Have fun!
