Duration:   8 hours 30 minutes


  • Guided hike with a Swiss Ranger
  • Watching ibex in the open countryside
  • Information on the reintroduction of the ibex
  • Benefit from the incredible knowledge of a Swiss Ranger

During the one-day Ibex Tour you will discover the realm of the ibex and others. A Swiss Ranger will guide you through the secluded Weisstannental valley. The ranger will provide you with exciting information about the life of the wild animals and help you to spot them.

Deer, roe deer, bearded vultures, chamois, ibex - these wild animals feel at home in the Tectonic Arena Sardona UNESCO World Heritage Site. During the Ibex Tour you will hike through the secluded Weisstannental valley, past 80-metre-high waterfalls. A Swiss Ranger will guide you through the wild nature. The Swiss Ranger will tell you how the animals live and what is special about their habitat. You will be taken to places where you can observe the animals in the wild. With a bit of luck, you will spot the majestic mountain inhabitants that many of us only know from photos.

Note: The tour temporarily differs from the usual route due to weather conditions. However, the chance of spotting an animal remains the same.
