Starting from our hotel gave us easy access to a great hike. We started by taking the chair lift up towards Vigiljoch and after passing the church it was through the forest to Naturnser Alms for lunch.

The scenery changed to be much more arid, opening up to some great views before we headed back down hill. The region is known for apples and the valleys have nothing else!

Unfortunately my camera was set in a wrong mode so some of the photos are a bit washed out.
