Arcadia Women Adventures Presents

Hiking expedition

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.
