Simplon Dorf

Turn-by-turn directions

Von Zwischbergen steil empor zur Furggu. Landschaftlich schöner Abstieg über Feeberg nach Gabi. Von dort aus nicht auf dem direkten Weg (da praktisch ausschliess aspaltierte Strasse), sondern auf der orografisch linken Seite den Wald hoch und anschliessend über Wiesen nach Simplon Dorf.
