    Tour Highlights & Details:

    – Saas-Fee, Switzerland: Hotel Allalin
    – Muerren, Switzerland: Hotel Eiger

    Highlights – Saas-Fee: The Mischabel Range in the Pennine Alps with the Dom, Täschhorn, and six other peaks topping 4,000 m (13,123 ft.) surround the village of Saas-Fee. Whether you’re interested in gentle hiking or high altitude alpine treks, Saas-Fee is the answer.   There are 217 miles of trails above the Saas Valley that provide views of 18 impressive 4,000-metre peaks.  We receive a lot of complements about Hotel Allalin and comments along the line that they had no idea how beautiful Saas Fee is.  They also like the pace of the town much more low key than most places.

    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, Carrie Carlquist and Lynne Laflamme
