The higher hiking trails are snow-covered. We recommend good shoes and walking sticks.

Hochwart Summit Tour

Hike along the famous Wildsee to the Hochwart at 2669 m above sea level. The route is part of the 4-summit tour on the Pizol.

The well-known, turquoise-blue Wildsee is embedded in stony scree, which now only hints at the presence of the former Pizol glacier. In the background it is lined by the striking mountain peaks around the Pizol. On this tour we will experience the Wildsee and the crater from different angles. There are also impressive views of Schottensee, Schwarzplangg, the Pizol peak and the Gaffara valley, where up to 600 sheep graze in the summer months.

4 Summit Tour on the Pizol

The Pizol area is known for its breathtaking panoramic views over the St. Gallen Rhine valley to Lake Constance. Nowhere can you enjoy the view as undisturbed as on the highest peaks of the hiking area. The hike to the Hochwart is part of the 4-summit tour on the Pizol. The stages Garmil, Gamidauerspitz, Hochwart and Pizol can all be hiked independently of each other, but can also be combined as desired.

The Berghotel Gaffia is the ideal overnight accommodation and starting point for this tour, especially for combinations of the 4 Summit Tour.
