GIVING SOMETHING BACK TO GOMS.
Do you like to spend time in untouched nature and love to explore the high valley on foot? Would you like to give something back to Goms? Then you've come to the right place, we're looking for you!
The Goms is characterised, among other things, by its network of hiking trails covering around 400 kilometres. The hiking trails are maintained and cared for by the Goms Forest. This ensures that hiking enthusiasts in the high valley can choose from dozens of safe and varied routes at any time.
The effort for the maintenance of the hiking trails is enormous and external support would greatly relieve the employees of Forst Goms, so that they can devote more of their working time to innovation and larger projects. That is why we have launched hiking trail sponsorships. Before your next hike, find out what minor maintenance work needs to be done on the trail and invest a few minutes along the way to make the trail fit for the summer. In addition to relieving the burden on Forst Goms, we also see this project as an opportunity to offer guests and locals alike a glimpse behind the scenes and thus sensitise them to the issues of nature conservation and landscape management.
Caring by hiking.
The idea is that you will be caring for a hiking trail that you enjoy walking. So to speak, caring by hiking. Here you can combine a good cause with a nice hike.
As a sponsor you have various tasks.
The hiking trail network
Is your favourite hiking trail included and do you want to ensure that it continues to provide unforgettable hiking moments? Do you prefer to get to know a new trail and maintain it while hiking? When it comes to the choice of routes by the godmothers and godfathers, the principle applies: first come first served.
Are you ready to take on this exciting and adventurous challenge? Then we look forward to getting to know you personally. We would like to thank you for your commitment.
We look forward to receiving your registration with contact details and your desired hiking route at email@example.com or +41 27 974 68 68.
A look back at the initial day
On Saturday 21 May 2022, the initial day of the "hiking trail sponsorships" project took place, in keeping with the Good Deed Day. All sponsors who had registered by then were invited for instruction and to get to know Forst Goms. At the same time, the Trail Clean Up Goms took place on this day.
In early summer temperatures, 19 motivated volunteers met in Ulrichen together with the team of Obergoms Tourismus AG and Forst Goms under the direction of the product manager Bike of St. Gotthard. The common goal was to make the hiking and biking trails in Goms fit for the summer. The busy day could be reviewed over fine regional delicacies from the grill. Obergoms Tourismus AG would like to thank the participants for their active interest and is already looking forward to the next edition.
