Itinerary

Make your own way to Zurich, where we'll meet you at the airport and transfer you by rail to the pretty, traffic-free village of Wengen. After settling in we'll head out for a walk around the village and afterwards you'll have time at leisure. This evening get to know your travelling companions over a welcome drink and dinner at the hotel.​

​Walk 12km/7.45mi – 3.5hrs
After breakfast we'll take a short train ride to Lauterbrunnen. From here the first of our guided walks takes us along the White Lütschine and the Lütschine Rivers to the village of Wilderswil. Here we'll board a nostalgic cogwheel train and wind our way up the mountain to Schynige Platte where we'll be greeted by alphorn players. Enjoy your packed lunch in the company of your travelling companions and perhaps take a stroll around the Botanical Alpine Garden, which is home to more than 600 species of plants.
After returning to Wilderswil we'll travel to Interlaken and then back to Wengen by train.​​ Dinner will be served at the hotel this evening.​

​Walk 10.1km/6.3mi – 3 hrs
We'll take the train to Lauterbrunnen again this morning and walk along the valley to the Trümmelbach Falls. We'll have time to discover this magnificent site, a series of 10 glacier-fed waterfalls hidden away inside a mountain, before continuing on foot to Stechelberg. From here we'll take a cable car to Gimmelwald and then continue our walk to Muerren, admiring impressive views of the north face of the Eiger along the way. We'll travel to the summit of Allmendhubel by funicular and if you've already eaten your packed lunch, a lovely restaurant here serves local specialities, drinks and delicious cakes.
We will follow the trail back down to Muerren and descend to Lauterbrunnen by train and cable car, returning to Wengen by train. Dinner is at the hotel this evening.​​

We have left today free for you to explore. Why not head out with your travelling companions and make use of your Bernese Oberland Pass so you can explore the region at your leisure. We'll gather as a group again this evening to enjoy dinner at the hotel.

​Walk 12 km/7.5miles – 4.5 hours
After breakfast we'll take a cable car to Männlichen, the start-point for today's walk. We'll walk along the eastern flank of the Tschuggen Alp to Honegg. After an easy hike we'll reach Kleine Scheidegg, where we can relax and enjoy our packed lunch. After this, we pass through alpine pastures on our walk down to Alpiglen, following the trail to Grindelwald. From here, we will ascend to First by cable car and enjoy panoramic views from the summit, before returning to Wengen by train.
We'll enjoy our final evening at the hotel, where dinner will be served.​
