Pristine wilderness – just as nature intended

Swiss National Park

With the onset of winter in mid November, the Swiss National Park becomes encased in a thick layer of snow. To ensure the animals living there are not disturbed during this time, the park closes over winter. Spring usually starts later in the national park than in other parts of Switzerland. Despite this, the first few hiking trails reopen to the public around the end of May and the park once again reveals its unique beauty to visitors from far and wide. The park is at its best in July and August, when the diverse plant life of this Alpine paradise is in full bloom. This is also an ideal time to observe local wildlife – so don’t forget to bring along your binoculars. In autumn the days grow shorter and inclement weather signals the approaching winter. The national park prepares to go into hibernation.
