Bärenpfad

A bear paw still hangs today in the municipal hall in Oberems! Important information about the bear and the bear trail is to be found on the hike along magnificent tracks through the forests and rustic hamlets. Spectacular cable car rides round off the experience.
The trail offers beautiful views, magnificent tracks through the forests, interesting information about the bear, amusement for children, and if you don't want to carry a rucksack - no problem, because there are restaurants at the start and finish.

The start in Unterems is reached either with the cable car or with the car. There are beautiful views of Ergisch and of the opposite side of the Rhone valley. The trail lies directly beside the old water course in beautiful mixed woodland. There is an info board in the next hamlet you walk through which commemorates the bear shot by hunters here. After crossing the Turtmännä stream, you reach the beautiful Toibuwald with its high fir trees. Cross lush meadows with a unique variety of flora to reach Oberems with its intact mountain farming and wonderful old Valais houses. The bear paw is also to be found here.

The bear trail can also be tackled from Oberems and is equally attractive.
