ITINERARY

Day 1 \  Meeting in the morning, we will start our hike looking for wildlife. Depending on sightings, the exact itinerary of the hike will vary. We will then stop walking to find a nice spot overlooking the mountains to have a pique-nique for lunch. Meanwhile, we will keep our eyes open because you never know when a Bearded vulture or a Golden eagle will show up! After lunch, we will keep looking for animals hoping to get good sightings of Chamois and Alpine Ibex. We will head finally head towards our refuge where will have a typically Swiss dinner. After dinner, we can spend the night reviewing your images if you would like to. We will stay at the same refuge for the night.

Day 2 \ Waking up early so we can enjoy the sunrise outside in nature, this second day will again focus on exploring the area in search for wildlife. Another pique-nique is planned for lunch. The tour will end in the afternoon.
