The Wildhorn tour is a very beautiful and scenic 4-day hike. You stay in SAC huts and mountain inns and hike between 8 and 17 km every day. The highlights are certainly the four lakes Lac des Audannes, Sanetschsee, Iffigsee and Lauenensee, which are all uniquely embedded in the magnificent mountain scenery. You can start the tour from any of the four huts.
