I have been walking in the mountains for more than 40 years, and I still haven't gotten tired... If the walking itinerary is like yesterday's one, in Fedox valley, in the Engadin, Switzerland, with its enchanting autumn sceneries, boredom is a really unfamiliar state of mind. In this article, we describe the trek that leads you to discover this valley, and the adjacent Fex valley, starting from Maloja, on the shores of Lake Sils.

Monte Brè is a relief that rises steeply immediately east of Lugano, in Canton Ticino (Switzerland). It can be reached with a comfortable funicular from the city, or with a beautiful panoramic excursion, from the shores of the lake, and more precisely from the village of Gandria.

The Ponale track is one of the most spectacular hiking/biking trails on Lake Garda. Carved into the rock overhanging the lake, it allows you to admire amazing panoramas. It can be traveled on foot, by mountain bike, or, as we did, with E-Bike.

The trek from Varigotti to Noli is a classic Ligurian walking, and is much appreciated by those who love wandering among seaside hills. It is a walk which, with a reasonable commitment, takes you to admire panoramas dominated by the blue Ligurian sea and by the ocher limestone of the coast between Finale Ligure and Noli, in the province of Savona. Really exciting images.

An excursion in Val Trupchun, in the heart of the Swiss National Park, in the Engadine, is a wonderful experience, especially in autumn.

In this article, we describe the simple itinerary to explore this Swiss valley, with some advice.
If you want to give yourself a relaxing day of cross-country skiing, try the tracks of the famous Val Ferret, in Val d'Aosta. The tracks, within everyone's reach, develop under the gaze of the spectacular peaks and pinnacles of the Mont Blanc group, in a valley with enchanting panoramas.
