The Binntal landscape park is a nature and hiking paradise that is largely unknown in Switzerland. Fanny Smith, the personable Swiss ski cross world champion and Olympic icon, headed off on a mountain hike to explore this natural dreamland. The hike leads past Maniboden, a site that is considered to be a place of power, before heading to one of Switzerland’s most amazing mountain lakes, the Mässersee, not far from the Italian border. On the return home, it takes a brief break at the Längenbach mineral mine, a reminder that the Binntal region is one of the world’s leading sources of rare minerals. This fascinating hiking adventure will reveal to you just what glittering crystals and precious Olympic metal have in common.
