In summer the area of Moosalp offers you an extensive network of hiking paths. Especially popular is the "Stand" viewpoint, which offers an outstanding view of the surrounding Valais and Bernese 4000-metre peaks. Picturesquely nestled below the "Stand" lies the Bonigersee. The tarn is covered by thick mossy areas and is a nature reserve, but a hiking trail leads most of the way around it. The protected region covers an area of 1.5 square kilometres with 11 different types of moor land, including high and flat moors, some of which are national natural preservation sites.
