On foot

Arrive 'n' go! Simplicity is what it's all about when it comes to hiking, walking and running in Obwalden. Summer and winter, Obwalden is Switzerland's most rewarding walking and running region thanks to the varied terrain, wealth of aerial cableways and places to eat, and peaceful hotels, holiday apartments and other forms of accommodation.


Almost all the footpaths offer views, encounters with the local flora and fauna, and idyllic resting and picnic spots. And while some have historical monuments as their goal, others are themed trails of interest to children as well as grown-ups.
