Disclaimer: Bear in mind this a trip planned for the summer of 2021, where hopefully Covid restrictions will be reduced.
A friend of mine will be hiking the whole Via Alpina and I am looking to accompany him when he crosses through Switzerland. Our plan was originally to camp all the way through but apparently wild camping is not allowed in Switzerland.
I would then like to ask if there are spots for camping across the Via Alpina or if the Huts/Refuges are our only option. If so, how cheap are they? We are looking to minimise the prices, but also having the opportunity to camp in a very nice place would be amazing.
We are not members of any alpine club if that matters.
What is the best course of action?
