Laura the Goat is centre-stage on this tour of the environs of Gais. Hike through the moorlands with views of the hill country as you pass Laura's favourite spots: an idyllic lakelet, goat sheds, a training track for goat kids, and seats with views of Mount Säntis.
«My name is Laura, goat Laura from Gais. I am delighted to be able to show you my favourite places in our wonderful countryside. So it's absolutely correct that it's called 'Gais Naturally Made'. Naturally the pretty huts are made of wood. Now I'd like to wish you much fun as you discover my favourite spots. Perhaps we'll meet up along the way!» You will be warmly greeted by Laura at the train station in Gais where the trail begins.

The trail leads you, firstly along a gently hilly walk to Laura's «Power Area». The view of the village, which is famous as a «dairy spa-resort», is exceptionally spectacular from this point. The trail in Laura's footsteps, takes you over hills and through a steep forested area. On the way to Sommersberg mountain, you pass the «Geissensteig», a training track for young goats. And at the top, you can discover Laura's swing seat in its hut.

Further on passing through, the mystical moorland landscape you will come upon the Gäbris lake. A walk around the lake to inspect Laura's «Work Area» is essential. On your way to the Gäbris you will learn the story of «Flöckli» from Laura's Aunt. At this point you can take the opportunity to stop at the Restaurant for refreshments or make a fire at the idyllic picnic area. Afterwards, it's downhill over the meadows to the village of Gais again. On your descent you will pass Laura's «Bell & Painting Area». For the «Grand Finale» you will return to Gais's award winning village square.
