Highlights – Kandersteg: Situated in the Bernese Highlands surrounded by 12,000-foot summits, Kandersteg is a great base to relish the traditional alpine lifestyle. A small farming village of 1,200, this place of unspoiled natural beauty is a mecca for hikers. The surrounding area holds secluded valleys, remote glacial lakes, hidden alps, and quaint mountaineering huts. Towering above this maze of hiking trails are glaciers that lead to four spectacular summits, the Doldenhorn, Frudenhorn, Oeschinenhorn, and Bluëmilsalphorn.

Highlights – Grindelwald: The Jungfrau massif (Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau); high mountain passes of Kleine Scheidegg and Grosse Scheidegg; and the hike from Grindelwald to the historic Mountain Lodge Faulhorn, with panoramic views over lakes Thun and Brienz; upper and lower glaciers of Grindelwald, Thunersee, Brienz See, and Interlaken; dairy farms and local cheeses and one of the best day hikes in the Alps the route above Grindelwald from First to Schynige Platte.

Highlights – Muerren: The Lauterbrunnen Valley seen from the village of Muerren is one of the best views in the Alps. The remote Obersteinberg hamlet deep in the mountains above Lauterbrunnen Valley is a do not miss hike when visiting Switzerland (Shannon’s favorite hike in Switzerland); plus Staubbach Falls, Trümmelbach Falls, and Schmadri Falls and Höldribach Falls make the Lauterbrunnen a top tier Swiss hiking get away.

Guides: Shannon Harris and Navita Shyam
