After meeting your group and Tour Manager at our St Pancras Departure Office, we board the Eurostar to Paris, continuing by high-speed TGV to Mulhouse for an overnight stay. The following morning on Day 2, we travel by rail into the heart of the Swiss Alps, arriving in the mountain village of Kandersteg, in the Jungfrau region, along the valley of the River Kander.
We spend six nights at the family run Hotel Bernerhof. Idyllically located over-looking meadows in the heart of the small village of Kandersteg, the hotel boasts superb views of the surrounding mountainous Alpine scenery, and is an ideal location from which to explore the area. After dinner we meet one of our Mountain Guides for a briefing about our walks.
Renowned for its breathtaking views and scenic trails, the countryside around Kandersteg is the perfect base for a walking vacation. This area is within the UNESCO World Heritage Lötschberg Area, with over 550km (330 miles) of paths. With so many trails to choose from, our Mountain Guides enable you to really get the best out of this vacation. A wealth of hiking paths, all clearly signposted, makes independent walking easy too, most of which are within a short distance from Kandersteg itself.
