The Swiss Alpine Pass Route via Alpina Route 1
East to West Across SwitzerlandBook - 2017
This guidebook presents the stunning Alpine Pass Route, a 360km (225 mile) long-distance trail that traverses Switzerland from east to west, from Sargans to Montreux on Lake Geneva (Lac Léman). Since the advent of Swiss national hiking routes and the European Via Alpina network, the route has been fully waymarked as Via Alpina 1, with a new start-point in Liechtenstein. This guide takes stock of changes to the original route and includes a 26km (16 mile) 'prologue' stage through Liechtenstein to the traditional start-point at Sargans, as well as alternative stages between Lenk and Montreux to follow the 'old' Alpine Pass Route via Gsteig rather than the VA1 via Gstaad.
