Hikes during bad weather in winter

The sun cannot shine every day. Unfortunately!

If you are looking for suitable hikes that can be done even in unsettled weather, then you are in the right place. This listing also includes winter hiking trails, because if it should ever rain in the valley, there is at least snow at altitude, which makes hiking more pleasant.

Have fun hiking!
