One hour, is how long it takes to walk along the Sense from the Guggerbach bridge in Zumholz, to Planfayon.
The river, with its habitat still intact, attracts walkers away from the beaten track. Who would not be tempted to dip their toes into the cool, refreshing mountain water on a hot day? Resistance is futile! Barefoot on the gravel or sand banks, looking for the roundest pebble, wild flowers or colourful insects, the glories of nature will sweep away all your day-to-day worries. The undulating river bed stretches to the summits of the Fribourg and Bernese Alps, including the famous Gantrisch (2,175 m). This is the source of the river that has been declared the most natural in the Northern Alps by the WWF. Its long and timeless course transforms the rocks into pretty pebbles and deposits them at the feet of walkers, like Alpine pearls.
This walk in the region of the Gantrisch Nature Park promise many discoveries. Time stands still and it feels so good!
