Lünersee – Rätikon light

Lünersee – Rätikon light – 4-6 days

Level: T2, with some parts T3
Period: End June – mid September

This is a spectacular hike in the high alpine area around the Lünersee. The length can easily be adjusted and can also be combined with our hike ‘Around the Sulzfluh‘, since both hikes have the Lindauerhütte on their itinerary. So you could even make this an epic eight or nine-day-hike!
