Mistery Hiking Trail

The Mistery Hiking Trail is a staging activity we did in order to present a new staging experience in a video.

We decided that our participans… :

1. …have to solve a mistery (Topic – the lead instrument)

2. …while hiking (Sub-topic)
…There are different adaption for Christmas, Easter, Kids, Halloween, Valentine’s Day (Changing subjects)

3. …get different things in oder to solve the mistery (explained in the video) which encourages the people to participate. (The stimulation/activation instrument)

4. … can also enjoy the landscape of the Pilatus while hiking (Scenery – the esthetic instrument)

5. … will be doing the hike in a group of max. 10 people. (Visitor management – the steering tool)

6. … receive a mobil phone for security reasons as well as a map where the hinks to the mistery are indicated. To add value, one of the employees will bring them their lunch, so that they don’t have to carry it with them (Management of wellbeing – the support instrument)

7. … are people who like being physically and mentally active. The mistery hiking trail is for anybody,  at any age, who is in good condition. We recommend a minimum age of 4 for the Kids special and a minimum age of 10 for the others (Visitors/Guests – the evaluation instrument)

Global mountain tourism current and future conditions

bild incoming

Mountains are important assets for the tourism industry. They take up an estimated share of 15-20% of the global tourism market, generating between 100 and 140 billion US$ per year. The winter tourism is more developed but will decrease in the future. There will be less snow because of the global warming. The summer activities like hiking, climbing and mountain biking need to get more advertised. The mountain industry has to minimize the seasonal effect and diversify the supplies.
