Ready to Join?

When one thinks about breath-taking Swiss landscapes, most of the time the snow-capped Alps or turquoise lakes come to mind.

In some more unknown regions of Switzerland however you might be surprised about the immaculate greenery, small villages, meadows, green fields, orchards forests and hilly tracks. I like to get every so often off the beaten tracks. If you are into the same mindset and willing to broaden your horizons you will be delighted to join us for the following hike where Basellandschaft, Western Solothurn meet and the Northern Jura mountain range begins:

-Liestal – Nuglar – Gempen - Dornach

-Length: 14 km

-Duration: 4 hours should be realistic including a one hour lunch break in the wildlife

-Elevation: Protected content upwards, Protected content , though do expect occasional elevations peaks and some short but fairly steep uphill in the second half of the hike as well as a fairly steep downhill into Dornach in the final hiking phase

-Required fitness level: in order to enjoy the hike, you should be able to keep on hiking for several hours on end and not completely lose your breath on a Protected content uphill. Your fitness level should ideally be intermediate to moderately advanced and you should bring some hiking experience with you.

Have we awaken your interest? If so let’s get down to the practicalities:

-Date: Sunday May 26th Protected content

-Meeting point: Protected content

-Meeting time: 10:00 AM – We will set out and start hiking at 10:15 AM. Please show up on time so as not to delay the whole group

-Arrival point: Protected content
Upon arrival we can chill out with a drink and enjoy our togetherness before boarding the train back to Basel and ultimately Zurich

-What should you bring along? Good hiking boots and appropriate gears according to the weather on that day are essential as well as enough drinking water, a pic-nic to keep you going for the next 4 hours or so (it is highly recommended to have a substantial breakfast on the same morning). Carry in your backpack some sun blocker and a cap. A small first aid kit might come in handy.

Disclaimer: This is not a guided tour! Each participant is responsible for their level of fitness and must be fully aware of the hike level of difficulty. You should have your own health care and casualty insurance policy and it is your responsibility to ensure that are adequately and sufficient insured.

Looking forward to seeing you all !
