Here you will be booed! But don't be offended: the marmots in the Bergalga Valley greet their visitors in this way.
On the worldwide unique signposted adventure and educational trail you will meet the furry hibernator in its natural environment. On the way you will learn a lot of interesting facts about the life of the marmots at eleven stations.
The nature trail leads from Loretschhus near Avers-Juppa to Alp Bergalga/Olta Stofel (2,074 m above sea level). The hiking time from/to Loretschhus is about 2 hours. The path is suitable for prams and is also suitable for wheelchair users with aids (e.g. Swisstracs). At the start of the trail there is a well-equipped barbecue area and a playground.
Here you will find various information about the nature trail as well as the texts for the 11 stations.
Any hiking trail closures/restrictions or diversions can be found here.
In the most beautiful sunshine between 12.00 and 15.00 o'clock, the marmots usually treat themselves to a siesta. Ideally, therefore, you visit them accordingly before or after. Binoculars are definitely recommended. The marmots usually hibernate from mid-September.
