Hollowed out by glaciers, the wild landscape of the Breccaschlund is both fascinating and mysterious.
From Riggisalp, take the «Höhenweg» towards la Brecca, one of the most beautiful alpine valleys, carved out by the glaciers tens of thousands of years ago. Succumb to the magic of this valley and feel the power of nature that is at work here. Discover mountains, rocks, animals, plants - but also the ways in which man uses them.
2 hiking trails lead to the Brecca Valley from Schwarzsee – a short and a bigger tour. Take the chair lift from Schwarzsee (1,047 m of height) for a comfortable ride to the Bärghuus Riggisalp (1,493 m of height), the starting point for the Breccaschlund circular walk. The short tour needs about 2.5 hours and is a good choose for families and occasional hikers. For the bigger tour, it will take more than 4 hours and around 15km. With such an effort, you will need at least 1 break. There are numerous local inns along the route – the Alpine restaurant St. Antoni Brecca, at the Alp Cerniets or the Alp Steinige Rippa, for example, knows exactly how to pay tribute to fine cheese. But remember to leave a bit of room for dessert, which we suggest you have at the Alp Hubel Rippa, with a splendid panoramic view over the Schwarzsee, around 20 minutes’ walk away.
