Hiking and Walking in Switzerland

By June 15, 2018 No Comments

Join me in Wengen, Switzerland, one of the original hiking centers in the Swiss alps, conveniently located to access many stunning areas for hiking and walking via trails, cable cars and trains, within 30 minutes of the city of Interlaken. We use trains and cable cars to take us to pristine hiking areas without spending hours hiking to upper levels. The walks and hikes are generally moderately difficult paths are mostly wide and easy walking or hiking though at times there may be shorter, more challenging terrain.

You must be in good walking shape to do this tour. Please call and discuss with me if you have any concerns about your fitness level. We often walk/hike for a liesurely 4 hours or more a day, stopping for breaks, picnics, pubs or to take pictures.

We will stay at Hotel Silberhorn, located just a short walk from the Wengen train station, on the main street of this quaint Alpine village. All of our rooms will have south facing balconies so you can view the fabulous Jungfrau,Eiger and Monch peaks from your bedroom.

The Hotel Silberhorn has recently completed a fabulous new spa which you can use every day. Check out the hotel and the new spa here.

During our 2013 Tour we will hike panoramic trails in the alps in the surrounding area, take the historic Schynige Platte railway to visit the Alpine Gardens, climb inside the Trummelbach Falls on our Lauterbrunnen Valley walk, explore and shop in Interlaken and along the river to Old City, hike along the beautiful aquamarine lake known as the Thunersee and the visit the Beatus Caves.

We’ll enjoy lavish breakfasts and dinners at our hotel, plus a fun wine and pizza night in town town and a Swiss Specialty Dinner.

In late June the Alps will be carpeted with wildflowers. Temperatures will be perfect for walking, hiking, dining at mountaintop cafes and enjoying the fantastic views.

This is a trip of a lifetime. Everyone is captivated by Switzerland — its majesty, it’s pristine beauty and it’s picturesque houses and countryside. Come to the land of Heidi!
