2021: Various Hikes / Tours

4 Days Hike October 2021: Willisau - Urtenen-Schoenbuehl - Huttwil


Willisau - Huttwil - Burgdorf - Urtenen-Schoenbuehl - Burgdorf - Huttwil (77km)

Thursday October 7, 2021: Willisau - Huttwil

As I had limited time to hike toward Bern, I took the train from Zug to Willisau and started from there - following the national hiking route no 4 (Via Jacobi) - one ascends quickly and walks on the ridge forward and descends into Huttwil. From there I ascended again and in the next forest I found a nice spot still getting some of the sunshine of the setting sun. All day long was cold north-east wind known as "Bise", and mostly overcast, yet in the evening some sunshine as mentioned.

Friday October 8: Huttwil - Burgdorf

Leaving late and keep walking on the ridge, slightly hilly toward Lueg ("See"), a small peak overseeing toward 360° view, toward south the bernese alps and north the Jura ridge. Eventually reaching Burgdorf, pictoresque city, alike charming like Huttwil. I hiked a bit further apprx. 30-40min further and found a nice spot in the forest again. Mostly overcast and windy again, cold wind apprx. 10-12°C.

Monday October 11: Burgdorf - Huttwil

Early morning was cold, near 2-3°C and nearby meadows had icy grass (below 0°C), but less wind to walking warmed up the body quickly. Beautiful sunny day (10-13°C) and reaching Burgdorf, shopping food for today, and continue nearly the same path as previous days, but then choose another route through Duerrenroth and eventually reach Huttwil around 16:00 where this small hike ended.
