Have you always wanted to go on a multi-day hike? If so, we recommend the Buiräbähnli Safari. This challenging hike takes roughly 20 hours and includes two overnight stops. The circular trail starts and finishes at Engelberg railway station.

From Engelberg, the path leads via Zingel and Lutersee lake to Eggendössli, where you take the Rugisbalm cableway down to Mettlen (Grafenort). Once down in the valley, you follow Engelberg's Aa river to Büelen valley station then catch the cableway up the mountain. From there, the path sets off on a mostly gentle descent via Schwand towards Diegisbalm, where you take the cableway down to Wolfenschiessen. Next, you continue along the Aa river as far as the entrance to the village, then walk through Wolfenschiessen to reach Brändlen valley station. From there it is just a short walk to your first night's accommodation at Berghof Brändlen.

Questions and answers

Question from Martin Rabenstein · February 13, 2021 · Community
Hallo, wie verhält es sich mit der Auschilderung der Safari? Gibt es ggf. ein bestimmtes Symbol, dem man folgen kann oder sind die Wege so gut beschildert, dass man keine Wanderkarte braucht?
