There are plenty of ways to enjoy Switzerland’s natural beauty, from scenic train rides to epic hikes and more. As of this summer, that list got a little bit longer, thanks to the grand opening of Senda dil Dragun, the longest treetop walkway in the world.
Stretching 1.5 kilometers (slightly less than a mile), Senda dil Dragun connects the villages of Laax Murschetg and Laax Dorf in southeast Switzerland, with an elevated trail that soars above the forest floor. Senda dil Dragun, which appropriately translates to “Way of the Dragon,” opened to the public on July 11 and has since welcomed over 45,000 visitors.
Throughout the walkway, guests will find different ways to enhance their experience, all while admiring the trees at eye level. This includes four platforms with seating and informational displays describing the plants, trees, and animals that can be found in the forest. If the thrill of walking through the forest canopy isn’t enough, younger visitors can get an added dose of adrenaline on the spiral slide, which is built into the tower in Murschetg.
