The excursion to the "far north" begins with a ride on the Rotenflue funicular - towards the mighty myths. On the hike, the view lets you pause again and again: to the valley basin of Schwyz, the lakes Lauerzersee and Urnersee and later also to the Ybrig mountains. The path leads through a mosaic of moorland, pastures and forests with wet soils. You feel as if you have been transported to Scandinavia. No wonder that the Swiss Foundation for Landscape Conservation has awarded the Ibergeregg in 2019. The hike ends in Oberiberg (bus stop New Zealand). During the bus ride back to the starting point, moorland and forests pass by the windows one last time.The hiking combination
