Take a comfortable and intimate private tour through Canton Glarus with an accredited environmental expert (MSc ETH Zurich).

Then drive up to the nearby mountain pass where you will go on a two-hour hike to reach the so-called Antarctica of Switzerland. You'll know you've arrived when you come upon one of the most impressive glaciers in the Alps where, when it’s warm, giant blocks of ice fall from the glacier and create small tidal waves. Stop for a picnic of traditional Swiss foods and delicacies and recharge your batteries. Or as an alternative to the hike, head to a beautiful lake in the heart of Switzerland. Check out a picturesque mountain village and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.
