There are plenty of ways to enjoy Switzerland's natural beauty, from scenic train rides to epic hikes and more. As of 2021, that list got a little bit longer, thanks to the grand opening of Senda dil Dragun, the longest treetop walkway in the world.

Stretching 1.5 kilometers (slightly less than a mile), Senda dil Dragun connects the villages of Laax Murschetg and Laax Dorf in southeast Switzerland, with an elevated trail that soars above the forest floor. Senda dil Dragun, which appropriately translates to "Way of the Dragon," opened to the public in July 2021 and has since welcomed over 45,000 visitors.

Throughout the walkway, guests will find different ways to enhance their experience, all while admiring the trees at eye level. This includes four platforms with seating and informational displays describing the plants, trees, and animals that can be found in the forest. If the thrill of walking through the forest canopy isn't enough, younger visitors can get an added dose of adrenaline on the spiral slide, which is built into the tower in Murschetg.

Guests are also able to complement their visit to Senda dil Dragun with a digital experience. Using a rented tablet at five designated areas throughout the walkway, visitors will enter the world of augmented reality (AR) and access information about the regional animal and plant life, geology, agriculture, and human settlement.

And while this walkway may seem like a warm-weather activity, Senda dil Dragun turns into a winter wonderland during the holiday season. Visitors can look forward to music, storytelling, and children's character appearances along the path.

Pricing for Senda dil Dragun starts at about $8.00 for a one-way ticket for children or $16.50 for adults. The Flims Laax region is also home to one of the largest ski resorts in Europe and the world's largest halfpipe, so there are plenty of other opportunities for adventure before or after visiting Senda dil Dragun.
