Lush mountain meadows and romantic woods against the fascinating backdrop of the Bernese Alps await you on your hike to Alp Bire. The "Alp Birehubel" circular hiking trail winds its way through the middle of the Gantrisch nature park, and we will take you along on this collection.
You will be accompanied on the family-friendly hiking trail by the ringing of little bells carrying the goats and cows of the alp around your neck. Already on the way at Gantrischseeli you can meet the animals that can move freely around the alp in summer. Maybe you'll also meet the goatherd of Bern and his cattle dogs. 13-year-old Adrian Mäder prefers to spend his summer holidays on the alp with his 13 goats. Together with his father, he herds a total of 86 goats — his own and those of local farmers.
At the large alp table in front of the hut, you can take a leisurely break with the girls. The family will spoil you with homemade goat cheese and refreshing drinks. Enjoy the unforgettable view of the striking Gantrisch and the idyll of the nature park.
In addition to the Gantrisch Nature Park, there are 17 other Swiss Nature Parks. In this collection we present six experiences in the most beautiful parks. From the several-day circular hike in the UNESCO Entlebuch Biosphere to the panoramic high-altitude hikes in the Jura or Thal Nature Parks, to the fantastic pass hikes through the unique landscapes of the parks, you will find everything your heart desires — above all lots of untouched nature.
