Arcadia Women Adventures Presents
4-11 September 2024, Switzerland
A Creative, Adventurous and Nurturing Experience Awaits You.
Trekking - Switzerland: from Zurich
A Trek through Parc Ela
The Parc Ela, situated in the heart of Graubünden, is the largest Nature
Park in Switzerland. Our trek takes us on a geological journey through the
formation of the Alps. With steep mountain peaks and vast landscapes
surrounded by glaciers and mountain lakes, walking in this area is as wild
as you get in the Alps.
The alpine villages and mountain passes reveal the long history of trade
between southern and northern Europe.
Home to three languages of Romansch, German and Italian, the influence
of all these cultures adds a fascinating dimension to the culture and
cuisine of the region.
The high point of our trek is reaching the Lunghin Pass, the triple
watershed. A drop of rain here, could end up in the Rhein, Po or Inn
rivers; flowing to the North Sea, Mediterranean or Black Sea respectively.
