- Hello everybody,
I have some questions concerning the conditions on Via Sbrinz. I am an experienced hiker, been to Canada, Slowakia, Norway and Corsica innumerous times. All the times though I have been on individual unguided trips. We camped or bivaked outside, no open fire (except in Canada), nature friendly behaviour (leave no trace) etc. Is any wild camping possible on the Via Sbrinz?

- Can anybody help me out? Also I am wondering whether this hiking trip follows streets alot, because that´s what I can see on the map:
alot of roads and paved trails!?!
Since we might be carrying tent, stove, sleeping bag and al the other equipement the etapes for one day seem to be quite hard with 25km... is there any chance to plan different etapes in shorter distances?
Thank you for your help

- Laki, I didn't walk this, but checking the information (http://www.sbrinz-route.ch/angebote/saeumer-wanderwoche-sbrinz-route.html) I would say this trail is not very difficult - look at those mule pictures: you won't be able to pass difficult spots with them. Contact the people of above website, they will know for sure.

- Hey Henk, thanks for the contact, I already did contact them, but I have to say it wasn´t very informative. Everything they helped me out with is exactly the little bit of info you can find online. True though, I don´t think the path is too hard. But people seem to walk it with little weight as they stay in hotels. We would want to carry a tent and food for ten days ourselves. That makes 25 km

- something very different to when you walk it with max of 10 kg. They couldn´t even tell me that there are campsites in the villages along the trail...because I only ask for wild camping. I thought they were like a tourist office that could supply you with all the info. Well, anyways. If you are interested in this route and also like to camp out for litlle money, check out the different camp sites

- in the villages along the trail. Not all of them do own one but I believe you can always find a little meadow, where you don´t disturb anyone and if you leave no trance behind maybe the locals will tolerate it. :) Best wishes.
