Hoher Ifen was our third and final adventure with Sandra and Markus for this time around, and it was a perfect hike for our now sore legs. This mountain has been in our sight from Sandra and Markus porch, so we got excited to hear that we would get a chance to take a closer look on this spectacular plateau, standing there in the distance. We let the pictures and videos speak for themselves!
Hoher Ifen blev vårt tredje och sista äventyr med Sandra och Markus för den här gången, en perfekt vandring för våra nu väldigt möra ben. Detta berg har varit i vår vy från Sandra och Markus veranda, så vi blev glada att höra att vi skulle få möjlighet att titta närmare på denna spektakulära platå, som fanns där i bakgrunden. Vi låter våra bilder och videos talar för sig själva!
Hoher Ifen, a 2230 meter high mountain in the Kleinwalsertal valley, was our mission on our last day with Sandra and Markus.
It was an easy hike compared to our previous two adventures the days before.
We took our time listening to the sounds of the mountains, mostly cow bells.
and taking pictures on the alpine flowers.
Sandra is making use of her camera!
The view is amazing, so don’t forget your camera.

We found a few butterflies on our hiking trip.
We had a picnic at the top and with a beautiful view to go with our lunch. We put together a short video from our first part of the hike that you can see below.
There is a small via ferrata on the south side of Hoher Ifen. People have died here so be careful when passing this part of the hike.
We ate second lunch on our way down at Scwarzwasser- Hütte. We tried a local dish called Kaiserschmarrn!
And had a Russ – a popular hiking drink with Weißbier and lemon soda.
We came across a waterfall in the end of our 8-hour hike, with a lot of stops, and we felt that it was a nice ending of a beautiful day.
But this hike had a big surprise in the form of an artificial lake, used as a water storage for snow canons in the winter, and we jumped in!
Last evening and we got to experience a beautiful thunder storm coming in the valley. We also filmed the rain and Hoher Ifen from the porch which you can see below.
The morning after we took the train to Bayern, Germany, for a few days of resting our muscles. Thanks Sandra and Markus for the awesome summer days spent with you in the Alps.
