Hello

We are looking to do a four day strech of the Via Alpina or the Trans Swiss Trail in the summer.

Which strech of that length is considered the best?

It needs to be one that we can be back in Zurich by the afternoon of the last day. (Meaning more like three and half days of hiking)

Looking to do as little traveling , and as much hiking as possible.

Thank You Very Much

Thank you.

We are thinking about doing the Trnas Swiis Trail stages 2-9.

Are those stages considered nice? Do you think it's doable in four days?

And also, where do you sleep on the trail? are there huts?

Thank you again.

Or maybe the Via Alpina stages 12-15?

Please check the links on the Switzerland mobility web site I linked for you above for details about accommodations and everything else (if the show the trail).

The SAC site describes the huts:
