Welcome to the Meetup Hike & Outdoor Group!!!

Switzerland is a hiking paradise, with trails covering almost the whole country...but there is more to see: majestic mountains, beautiful lakes and evergreen fields, just to mention few things. Since 2007 we have been organizing many, many hikes and other outdoor activities throughout the year. In Summer we do not only hiking, but also Rafting, Canyoning, Biking, Inline Skating and Climbing (Vía Ferrata). In Winter, we concentrate on Cross Country Skiing, Sledging (Sledding), Ice Skating, Ski Touring and Snowshoeing, as well as the traditional Alpine Skiing.

We are an international group, with people coming from all over the world ranging from Australia to the Americas. Our events are designed for everyone to participate, from beginners to advanced hikers.

If you are someone seeking to get to know the hiking paradise of Switzerland, do some exercise on the weekend and to get to know some really cool people, you came to the right place.

So get up from that couch and join us to enjoy together what Switzerland has to offer in nature and beauty.

See you then!

Magic Batöni and Weisstannen roundtrip, approx. 1'000m up/down, 5-6 hours, T2

You take the train 7:37h from Zürich to Sargans, arrival 8:32h. You will meet me in Sargans, from where we take the bus no. 432 together to Weisstannen, leaving 8:36h. From Weisstannen we hike up to Batöni, the so called waterfall-arena, a magic spot where 5 waterfalls meet. With luck we may see some Capricorn in the area. After enjoying this fascinating scenery we go on a round trip over Horn and later return to Weisstannen, where we may take a coffee or a beer. The bus back to Sargans is going every 2 hours. What you have to bring: good shoes, sun protection, rain protection, poles, if you have, drinks and some food for the hike. The MOST IMPORTANT: Disclaimer: The organizer is not responsible in any way for anything that can happen during the hike. Outdoor activities involve risks. Everyone joins on their own judgement and responsibility. This is not a guided tour. The less but also important: Be fair against your friends on the waiting list and do not drop of the last minute or even don’t show up without excuse. For the same reason I usually deny to bring guests. Be fair against our environment and try to take the superb swiss public transport, my tours are always designed accordingly.

As always, put a winter hat and light gloves in the backpack. If you haven't done hikes with me before, send me a quick meetup message right as you sign up to either the "going" or "waiting" list to confirm that you have read the description; your RSVP is not complete without a message. No-shows or late cancellations may not be welcome in future hikes. Disclaimer: The organizer is not responsible in any way for anything that can happen during the hike. Everyone joins on their own judgement and responsibility. This is not a guided tour. In case of bad weather, the hike may be modified or cancelled.
