The Champlönch-Il Fuorn route is the perfect introduction to the Swiss National Park. Especially if you’re traveling with the kids. Its interactive children’s trail is an easy tour that won’t make your little ones complain those dreaded words: Are we there yet? Especially when the payoff is seeing cute little marmots at the Alp Grimmels.

“I’ll show you what you can’t see” is the motto of the new Champlönch Kids’ Trail. Which must mean there is a mystery around every corner. A booklet and GPS device can be rented at the National Park Centre at Zernez to uncover the wonder.

And as always, you can get here from various points throughout Switzerland with its easy-to-navigate rail system.

So make your daughter’s hair into Heidi braids, and come take this enchanting children’s walk.
