Self-guided walks of 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:
This is one of my favourite hiking areas. June through August see nice weather, great for walking. You should come prepared for rain however and as summers can be hot bring a sun hat and suncream and plenty of water.
