This is a unique round walk through the moorland scenery of the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch. You'll love the barren raised bogs, flora-rich flat moors, and primal moorland landscapes!

The long-distance footpath with its five legs comprises 80 kilometres of springy moorland terrain, stony mountain paths, ancient pass routes, and unmade alp and forestry roads through barren high moors and flora-rich flat moors.
