This trip is perfect for you if you are an active walker looking for a challenging trek without the constraints of joining a group trip or the hassle of making the arrangements yourself. The flexibility of undertaking the Via Alpina as a self-guided trip allows you to go at your own pace with only your daypack to carry while we transport your luggage. This itinerary is arranged with upgraded accommodation to offer you a higher level of comfort and great spaces to unwind after a good day’s hike. You will hike on well-established paths, walking an average of 5 to 6 hours a day with a couple of longer days of around 7 to 8 hours walking, and ascend up to 1450m in a day. The terrain is varied, including straightforward paths across meadows, forest trails, steep rocky tracks, and routes across slopes with loose moraine scree, with some steps and chains to aid you over the steep ground. There are sections on balcony paths that feel exposed, which might be difficult for those suffering from vertigo. You may come across patches of snow and ice at higher elevations. This is a fantastic mountain trek with excellent waymarking throughout the route; nevertheless a sound knowledge of map reading is highly recommended. It is possible to shorten most days or take alternative routes if required, by using cable cars, trains or buses.

Why KE?

Enjoy the satisfaction of completing stages 10 to 15 of this classic long-distance alpine trek at your own pace and in comfort, with daily luggage transfers arranged and staying in carefully selected 4* & 3* accommodation throughout, some with spa facilities, perfect for rest and recuperation after a day’s hike.

Itinerary

Your holiday starts at your hotel, centrally located in the idyllic resort town of Meiringen. No doubt your excitement levels will be high on your arrival, having had your appetite whetted by your scenic journey through the spectacular landscapes of awe inspiring mountains, glistening lakes and lush green pastures on your way to the starting point for your Via Alpina hike.

Depending on your time of arrival to Meiringen, you may have the opportunity to discover some of the spectacular natural glacial formations to be found in this valley. The thundering Reichenbach Falls can be reached by a ride on the nostalgic funicular; it is here where Sherlock Holmes and his arch enemy Moriarty did battle and supposedly plunged to their deaths in Arthur Conan Doyle's short story "The Final Problem". Your excursion can be combined with a walk through the Aare Gorge, hewn by the force of glacial meltwater that carved through the limestone, forming a deep and narrow gorge with some sections up to 200m deep. Take your pick of restaurants tonight in which to enjoy your evening meal; as meringues are said to hail from Meiringen perhaps you might like to enjoy this sweet treat in its birthplace!

Accommodation

Hotel

After fuelling up on breakfast this morning, take a bus to reach Rosenlaui (1340m). Here you might like to pay a visit to the Rosenlaui Glacier Gorge, where a gently ascending trail leads you past waterfalls and fascinating geological formations shaped by thousands of years of water flow. From Rosenlaui you will pick up the waymarked Via Alpina 1 trail and walk beneath jagged peaks, climbing steadily through verdant meadows and up to the high pass at Grosse Scheidegg (1962m). From here you can gain your first tantalising views of the distinctive peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. You will keep these iconic peaks of the Bernese Oberland in your sight as your path descends toward Grindelwald (1036m), your home for the evening.

Awaking this morning beneath commanding mountain faces including those of the Eiger (3967m) and the Wetterhorn (3690m), it's easy to see why Grindelwald has been such a popular holiday destination over the centuries, attracting leisure tourists and mountaineers alike with its magnificent vistas and wealth of hiking trails, ski pistes and challenging climbs. Today you will hike beneath the infamous north wall of the Eiger, considered to be one of the most difficult Alpine climbing faces with a dizzying 1800m of vertical height. The first ascent of this face was only achieved in 1938; over the years it has claimed many lives, earning it the nickname "Mordwand", a macabre play on the German name of Nordwand (north wall) meaning "death wall". As you pass beneath this imposing wall, you can't help but to crane your neck towards its summit and imagine the adrenaline coursing through the veins of mountaineers as they tackle the vertiginous climb. Your route by sharp contrast is somewhat less nerve-racking, ascending through undulating meadows surrounded by sumptuous views to reach the pass of Kleine Scheidegg (2061m). The meeting point for two cog railway lines, this high point of the day would make for an excellent lunch stop with a view. Feeling sated, continue your walk which now descends into the next valley, bathed in the summer sun. The high path skirts the flanks of the Lauberhorn (2472m) before reaching the pretty mountain resort of Wengen (1262m) and your hotel for the evening.

The village of Lauterbrunnen is nestled in the valley below, positioned within a stunning fjord-like landscape of vertical cliffs and cascading waterfalls and is well worth taking the time to explore. You might like to walk down on a path that takes you past the spectacular Trümmelbach Falls, or you could use the cog train between Wengen and Lauterbrunnen. The name Lauterbrunnen translates as 'many fountains' - an apt moniker for this magnificent valley. The charming village of timber houses and its awe inspiring backdrop of high cliffs and hanging falls feels like you have been transported to an enchanting dream land.

An early start this morning might give you the opportunity to catch the dawn alpenglow on the peaks surrounding Lauterbrunnen. You have a tough but spectacular day of walking in store today. We suggest making use of the cable car and rail link to reach Mürren (1638m) at the foot of the Schilthorn (2969m). From here you commence your walk, ascending through wooded trails, high alpine meadows and across well-walked scree slopes. Panoramic views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau accompany you along your walk, offering silent encouragement and a visual motivation for your challenging hike today. The height gain is mostly steady, with a couple of steeper sections to navigate as you ascend part of the ridge beneath Bryndli (2132m) and over the mountain pass at Sefinenfurgge (2612m). From the Sefinenfurgge pass, the high point of this day, you'll be rewarded for your efforts with jaw dropping panoramas of the Schilthorn, Eiger and Jungfrau now behind you, and ahead of you the Kiental valley and rugged peaks including Blüemlisalp (3660m) and Aermighorn (2742m). Descending steeply from the high pass with steps and ropes to aid you on your way, the gravel and scree soon makes way for lush green pastures, accompanied by the gentle ringing of cowbells. Your path along the upper Dürreberg follows a babbling creek and past pretty waterfalls, inviting you to dip your feet into the waters to cool off, before completing your gentle descent to Griesalp (1415m) where you can rest up for the night and treat yourself to a well-deserved double helping of dessert.

You have another challenging but superlative day of hiking ahead of you, with varied and breathtaking scenery just waiting for you to discover. This day is the crowning highlight of the Swiss Via Alpina, reaching the high point of the trail through Switzerland at Hohtürli (2778m). Fuelled up on a hearty breakfast, you will set off from your hotel picking up the Via Alpina 1 waymarks, walk through tranquil forests of spruce and begin your ascent along the Bundalp, dipping in and out of the shade of the forests. Climbing above the tree line into ubiquitous alpine pastures, your route takes you past a handful of welcoming huts offering refreshments, before venturing into rockier terrain and sharper gradients. The path crosses slopes of glacial moraine, with red and white flashes guiding you through this challenging terrain. Plugging on to the rocky escarpment at the Hohtürli pass, enjoy a breather and drink in the stunning panorama of rugged peaks and glacial valleys and lakes before you. If you are feeling sprightly, the Blüemlisalp Hut is situated a further climb up at an altitude of 2840m, where you might like to take your lunch or enjoy a beverage on the terrace at this high point of your trek, with incomparable views to the Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, Schilthorn, Lake Thun, Niesen, Wildi Frau, Blüemlisalphorn and Blüemlisalp Glacier, all the way to the Wildstrubel.

Feeling re-energised after a short rest, you will begin a steep descent through the scree fields and take a balcony path hugging the rocky mountain flanks. Reaching the Oberbärgli mountain hut, you will gain your first sight of the magnificent Oeschinen Lake with unbelievable shades of turquoise waters, surrounded by vertical cliffs, high hanging glaciers and ancient fir trees. You have the opportunity to have a refreshing dip in this glacial lake to soothe your muscles before continuing your descent along the Öschibach river to reach Kandersteg (1174m) where you will rest up for the evening, tired but happy.

Feeling well-rested, you might like to enjoy a more leisurely start this morning as you have a shorter day of walking ahead. From the popular holiday resort of Kandersteg, take the cable car to reach Allmenalp (1730m) from where you will climb up fields of scree beneath the peak of Chlyne Loner (2586m) to reach the Bunderchrinde pass (2382m), sandwiched between craggy pinnacles. As always you are accompanied by gorgeous vistas of the surrounding peaks and valleys of the Bernese Alps, which might feel like old friends by now. From the pass, the Via Alpina descends the steep glacial corrie and wends its way across meadows and wooded trails to reach the bottom of the valley, where a warm welcome awaits you at your hotel in Adelboden (1347m).

You will embark on your final day of walking in the Bernese Oberland; your objective today to cross the Hahnenmoos pass (1950m) into the Simmental valley where your trek concludes in Lenk. From the idyllic year-round holiday village of Adelboden, your route ascends gently in the direction of the head of the valley, walking alongside the Gilsbach stream and through forest casting dappled sun and shade. Reaching the gondola station at Geilsbüel, follow the paved trail as it meanders through picturesque moorland to reach today's high point at Hahnenmoos. From this vantage point, you have an awesome panorama across to Wildstrubel (3244m), Wildhorn (3250m) and perhaps as far as Sommet des Diablerets (3216m). You can trace the wide path across the rolling pastures as it descends into the Simmental valley. In the winter this area is a hugely popular ski resort, with groomed pistes easily reached by gondola or chairlift; you will also pass a number of cosy chalets, restaurants and bars on your way to Lenk at the bottom of the valley at 1068m, and your home for the evening. Settling in to your hotel, you can enjoy a celebratory meal at a restaurant of your choice this evening, and reflect on your achievements and highlights over the last week.

Lenk has a vibrant culture, offering a diverse range of events and festivals through the year, celebrating music, culture and outdoor pursuits. Notably during the summer months you may be able to time your stay to coincide with the 10-day Jazz Festival in early July, or the Simmental Beer Festival in the first weekend of September. What a way to round off your trip!

Swiss food is an amalgamation of French, German and Italian cuisine which is hardly surprising with cantons of each language too; and not to mention that Switzerland is a cheese and chocolate lover’s dream destination with some of the world’s finest cheese makers and chocolatiers calling it home.

The great Swiss staple, the cheese fondue, is a custom all visitors must try; it is almost a rite of passage. A mix of melted delicious Swiss Gruyere cheese, wine and herbs it is the meal the Swiss Cheese Union claim ‘creates a good mood’, well unless you are first to drop your bread in the fondue that is. Tradition states the poor soul who drops their bread first, must foot the bill.

Although cheese fondue is delicious, it is certainly not the only yummy dish on the menu. Other national delights include Rosti, a fried potato dish which is served with anything from eggs to apples; Zurcher Geschnetzeltes, which translates to ‘meat cut Zurich style’ and made using slices of veal cooked in a mushroom cream sauce. Traditional food is generally rich and hearty but you will find many lighter options too such as soups, and fresh fish from the surrounding lakes. For a typical dish of the area, Berner platte is a traditional celebratory dish, consisting of a large plate with a variety of sauerkraut, meats, buttery potatoes and vegetables.

Of course, if you are to embrace the cake and coffee culture, you will tuck in to sweet treats such as apple strudel or the renowned Käsekuchen (cheesecake). Go on, you’ve earned it!

Whilst we can cater for vegetarians, albeit sometimes with a more limited choice, we cannot always provide special diets.  Due to the nature of some of the trips that we operate and the countries in which we operate them, it can be very hard (and sometimes impossible) to cater for a wide range of dietary choices and you may have to supplement your diet with food/snacks from home.  If you have specific dietary requirements please do speak to our sales team and they will be able to advise you whether or not we will be able to offer your specific choice.  Please note that we are unable to provide separate menus and cannot accept liability for any problems arising from special dietary requirements or intolerances.

This holiday has been designed with comfort in mind. You will stay in carefully selected 4* & 3* hotels throughout, offering you a wonderful space to rest and relax after each day's hike. All of the accommodations have been chosen for their fantastic locations, showcasing traditional alpine character and welcoming Swiss hospitality. Many also have spa and pool facilities, making them perfect for unwinding after a day of walking. The accommodations all offer a great breakfast buffet to fuel you for the day ahead and rooms are on a double or twin basis, some with Austrian style twin beds as is traditional in this area (two beds within one bed frame and separate bedding).

It is possible to arrange additional nights accommodation if you would like to enjoy this magnificent region a little longer. Please speak to one of our sales team for further details.

Your main luggage will be transferred between each of your hotels while you are out on your walk. We ask that you please ensure your luggage is limited to one piece under 20kg and that your luggage is ready for collection each morning.

Europe

Your passport must meet 2 requirements. It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the ‘date of issue’)

  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

For the latest details on visiting countries within the EU or the European Economic Area (EEA), please check the UK Government website

The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required, and you should have at least 2 blank pages for each country that you visit.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Please ensure that you check for the latest advice before travel. For the most up to date information on entry requirements, please visit the UK Government website.

Vaccinations

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations.

GHIC / Medical cover

UK residents should carry a free Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). This entitles you to state provided medical treatment when you're visiting an EU country or Switzerland. This is not a substitute for medical travel insurance which is vital when travelling overseas.

Severe Allergies

Please inform our KE Sales and support team of any severe allergies you may have before travel. We will always do our best to help but we are unable to guarantee an allergy free environment on our KE trips. We advise that you always carry your own treatment for the allergy with you such as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' if required.  We also recommend that you discuss this with your accommodation on arrival so that they can better assist you.

The unit of currency in Switzerland is the Swiss Franc.

Getting some additional exercise before coming on an active holiday makes a lot of sense. The fitter you are, after all, the more enjoyable you will find the experience. You should be aerobically fit and comfortable with walking 6-7 hours for consecutive days. Hill walking, with a good amount of ascent and descent, is the best training. Running, cycling and swimming are also good for developing cardio vascular fitness and stamina.

The temperatures that we can expect to encounter during the day will be reasonably warm, ranging between 10°C to 25°C. It can be cool in the evenings, dropping to as low as 5°C particularly at higher elevations. The weather is usually stable during the hiking season between July and September, but mountainous areas do generate their own weather systems and occasional rain and even stormy weather cannot be ruled out. You should be prepared for all eventualities!

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's ‘Travel Aware campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas. The 'Travel Aware' website provides a single, authoritative source of advice for all kinds of travellers and we recommend that prior to travel, all KE clients visit the official UK Government website at travelaware.campaign.gov.uk and read the FCDO Travel Advice for their chosen destination. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCDO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCDO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

KE do not encourage the use of single use plastic items. We are ensuring that our agents all over the world are working together to reduce the problem and educate those around them. We are leading by example in our KE office by reducing our plastic use.
