Description of Swiss Alps walking holiday, self guided

This Swiss Alps walking holiday is a tailor made trip and perfect for those who want to stay in one place, with magnificent hiking trails to take on every day. This base is a beautiful three star, family run hotel, with a heated indoor pool, sauna and superb Swiss cuisine.

The hotel is in Kandersteg, a high altitude village in the Bernese Oberland region, enveloped by Swiss Alps magnificence. You will take on different hikes every day for a week, savouring the classical terrain of Swiss mountain meadows, wildflowers, dramatic gorges, omnipresent waterfalls and views out to some of the great peaks, including Eiger, Jungfrau, Monch and the Matterhorn.

Your hotel hosts will give you a transport pass on the day you arrive which gives you access to cable cars and local buses. Hiking trails that we recommend in the itinerary below and in your information pack include cable car trips up to Allmenalp (1,725m) and Sunnbuel where you can take on ridge walks and seek out high mountain glacial lakes. This is a moderate walking holiday, with all trails between 4-6 hours and all easily accessible from your hotel, although a reasonable level of fitness is still required.
