Hello!

I'm looking to do a 2 or 3 day hiking trip in Switzerland (I'm very flexible on the area) in mid-March. I know that it's still quite cold/snowy at high altitudes, and I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for hiking trips at lower altitudes? I'm an experienced hiker but not in snow, and I'll be alone so I don't want to take any risky trails at this time of year.

Any advice would be really appreciated!

Thanks!

Annika

Welcome to MySwissAlps, amritarani, and thanks for posting here! How nice that you're planning to do some hiking in March. Yes, it may still be chilly in the lower areas and downright wintry up in the mountains, but there are definitely some low-altitude routes available. Always mind that these too can get snow-covered or otherwise tricky, so check weather forecasts and don't go out on your own if it's risky. Further hiking preparation tips can be found here: www.myswissalps.com/hiking/preparation.

Given the (possible) weather circumstances in March, you might also consider to base yourself in one town and make several local or regional hikes from there. You'll be a bit more flexible that way. Some of the lower lake areas like Lake Geneva (www.myswissalps.com/lakegeneva), Lake Maggiore (www.myswissalps.com/lakemaggiore), Lake Lugano (www.myswissalps.com/lakelugano), Lake Zurich (www.myswissalps.com/lakezurich) or the lakes near Neuchâtel and Murten might be suitable. Hiking suggestions are available at www.myswissalps.com/hiking.

If you do like to hike part of a longer trail, you could look into some of the lower situated segments of the below national routes:

In case you're planning a trip this March, please keep an eye on our coronavirus updates at www.myswissalps.com/forum/topic/does-the-corona-virus-affect-trips-to-switzerland.

I hope this gets you started!
