Sunrise or Sunset Walks

Unforgettable Mountain Adventure

The sunrise walks start early in the morning, having arrived at the top, you will be greeted by the first rays of sunshine – a memorable experience which soothes the pain of having risen that early.
Breath-taking scenery and panoramic views included.

For wildlife, the hours around dawn are an important time for taking in food and stocking up on energy. If they have the peace and time to absorb enough food during this part of the day, they can survive. As hikers and nature lovers we therefore have a special responsibility towards nature. For this reason, please make use of the guided and accompanied hiking offers!
