Nature in its purest form

The Swiss National Park

Established in 1914, the national park has three clear mandates: to protect, research and inform. The park is strictly protected from human influence, so that the environment can develop in its natural state. This approach has fostered an incredibly diverse range of flora and fauna, particularly among very small organisms. You can experience this rich biodiversity on your own or as part of a guided hiking group, as you explore the 80 kilometres of trails throughout the 170 km² national park.
