Iffigsee

The around five-hour round tour from Iffigenalp - Iffigsee - Iffighore - Hohberg - back to Iffigenalp leads through the attractive nature reserve of Gelten-Iffigen. In July and August, a richly varied and rare world of flora is found on the rugged and romantic Hohberg.
Iffigenalp is idyllically located at 1,584m altitude in a high valley above Lenk. From here, the hike begins through the Gelten – Iffigen nature reserve. After a first ascent, you reach the tranquil, deep-blue Iffigsee lake at 2,065 m. A place to linger and forget everyday routine.

The trail then climbs on to the Iffighorn at 2,378 m, from where the views are simply superb. A large variety of Alpine flowers including rare species, waits to be discovered on the steady descent via Hohberg.
