Come along as GreatOutdoors.com editor Peter Potterfield follows the legendary River Aare as it flows from it’s headwaters in the glaciers of the Swiss Alps to Switzerland's capitol of Bern. We climb, hike, bike and raft alongside the Aare, as it changes its moods from mountain stream, to roiling whitewater to more tranquil stretches.
