Chilling out in Switzerland Mar 21, 2011
Although a little bit distant from central Switzerland, the region Glarus is a very nice place to be. Especially if you are interested in seeing the extraordinary swiss landscapes, Glarus offers a lot, and without the many tourists and long waiting lines.

Klöntalersee is great. In summer when it's warm, the water in the lake warms up and offers great temperatures to cool off. Also you can rent a bike and take the half hour ride up there, and then cool off in the water, and perhaps camp outside over night. As the sun sets the scenery is lit up with all kinds of beautiful colours, and can also be a very romantic spot to share with loved ones. But bring a sweater, because it doesn't take too long after sunset before it gets chilly

Easy hiking tour Jul 19, 2010
A few days ago I started to extend my hiking skills for my Iceland trip. So we choose an easy trip in a great surrounding. The climb to the Kloentalersee is pretty nice. We decided to follow the small creek up to the dammed lake. As we’ve reached the top, we walked on the south side of the lake to Kloental where we returned to Glarus by bus.

The trip is great and easy to walk with trekking shoes. Do not forget to take your rain shield with you, because the weather changes really fast and it can cool down in short times over 10 degrees. Also don’t forget to carry your bathing suit for a swim in the beautiful lake.

For natural freaks: there are a lot of waterfalls, fauna and flora. We saw a few frogs around, so watch your step and open your eyes.
