Both areas are any hiker’s dream, with endless trails and routes across small valleys and gorges, with delicate birch woods, glacial rivers, crystal-clear brooks, and splendid mountain scenery. The sheltered location frequently enables the sun to shine through, even if it is raining on the other side of the glaciers.
