This excursion to the countryside appeals to guests who enjoy hiking off the beaten track and are in average to good physical condition. An unforgettable experience and surprising views are guaranteed. Europe’s largest yew tree forest is located on the Northern slopes of the Uetliberg, and narrow tracks facilitate close contact with nature. Zürich’s local mountain can be challenging, and participants should be equipped with light walking shoes for the uphill trek spanning a difference in altitude of 400 m/437 yards. Taking a snack and a rain jacket if the weather is uncertain is recommended. We begin our tour with a 15-minute tram ride via Bahnhofstrasse and Paradeplatz to Albisgütli. Anyone who is tired or would like to avoid the descent because of knee problems, for example, can travel back down independently by rail from the Uetliberg terminus. Our experienced Toptrek guide provides periodic explanations along the way and looks forward to your questions. Groups usually consist of no more than six people.
Please make your reservation (preferably by email, or phone) as quickly as possible up to 14:00 pm the day before. The hike ends at a station on the Uetlibergbahn (S10) with a direct connection back to the main station. Accident insurance is the responsibility of the participants.
If less than three people sign up for the tour, then after consultation (no later than the evening before) and decision by the interested parties, the tour will either take place on payment of a supplement (2 people, CHF 20 each, one person, CHF 80), or be cancelled.
Tue & Thu; other times and days (incl. Sat & Sun) on request.
