Wandern im Naturschutzgebiet Achera Biela

  • start: Ried-Brig
  • destination: Ried-Brig

The nature trail can be reached after an hour-long hike from Brig over the Biela. Alternatively, you can take the post bus to Ried-Brig. The Achera Biela is an important part of the cultural heritage of the Ried-Brig/Termen region and was declared a nature reserve of cantonal importance in 1994. The 24-hectare area is home to a variety of valuable habitats, some of which have become rare: traditional and near-natural arable crops, species-rich rough meadows, rock steppes, suonen, dry stone walls and terraces. At the end of the circular trail you will return to Brig on foot after half an hour.
