Swiss National Park

The oldest national park in the Alps

The Swiss National Park (SNP) was founded in 1914 and has since developed into a unique wilderness oasis. It offers mountain nature untouched by man and unforgettable experiences.

Marvel at the unique and diverse flora and fauna of the Alps with your whole family. The Swiss National Park spans 170 km2 and offers you 100 kilometres of hiking trails. Switzerland’s largest wilderness reserve lies in the east of Graubünden. 

Champlönch children's trail

"Would you like to see things that you don't normally see?" This question on the poster in front of the National Park centre sounds puzzling. But the Champlönch children's trail explains.

It has been offering families interactive experiences in the Swiss National Park since June 2009. Before your excursion, it is a good idea to visit to the National Park Center, where you can obtain a digital hiking guide equipped with GPS as well as a book and audio CD.
