Extended tours

Multi day tours:
I'm usually doing day hikes (Zug is a good base). If you'd rather spend the night in the mountains and/or are looking for multiple day tours, there are some ideas in the tables below. 
Some of the trails have been mentioned in this homepage as day tours.
It's probably a good idea, before leaving to check whether accommodation will be available.
Other areas:
Switzerland is a small country, but nevertheless, landscapes, languages, cultures, also the climate can be quite different.
Included in this page are notes from other regions that I've been to and have found interesting for hiking. 
It'll take some time to get into this regions. Therefore it's best to spend a couple of days there.
Chamoson:
The first thing recognized on entering the Rhone valley from the West are the many Vineyards. Hardly a hill without smaller or larger areas with Vines. Winding roads add to the picture. Part of the scenery are the many Villages, small towns and Tourist destinations, where most of the houses are in the typical Chalet style.
Nendaz:
On the other side of the Rhone valley, this region too offers lovely hiking tracks and ski slopes.
Crans Montana:
There is not only the two Towns, Hotels, Golf courses, Tennis, Casino…there are also hiking tracks for every taste: easy walks on flat terrain, mountain tracks, or climbing in rocky terrain
