It is easy to reach by public transportation or by car. Various snowshoe trails start at Arvenbüel, the highest part of Amden with spectacular alpine landscapes and beautiful views to the valley of Toggenburg and into the Glarus Alps. Standard hikes for beginners or experienced hikers take up to three hours, and special arrangements are possible for the more ambitious. I will take you to wonderful places in the area and introduce you to the spectacular highlights of the area -- wildlife and waterfalls, mountains and more.
