Hiking the Swiss Alps

Beneath the peaks of Jungfrau, Eiger and Monch, in Switzerland's Bernese Oberland, are some of the Swiss Alps most scenic hiking trails. Based in Kandersteg we hike the best of them, using cable cars to get us at altitude, and walk among towering cliffs and soaring peaks, glacial valleys and flower-strewn alpine meadows.

Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:
I spent a nice (albeit long) day in the area by taking the train to Wengen and from there ascended by gondola to Männlichen. From here a hike with spectacular views leads to Kleine Scheidegg, where you can board the train up to Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest railway station. Afterwards, you can return by train to your hotel, or return by train to Kleine Scheidegg and hike down to Wengen and then by train down to Lauterbrunnen.
