Immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty and incredibly towering peaks of the SWISS ALPS.
Trek along the base of the famous EIGER and feel its massive presence overtake you.
Take in a "Hut to Hut" experience like none other, traverse this area all by foot, reaching peaks with some of the most incredible views in the world.
Day 1 - Off to the Kleine Scheidegg - The infamous rail station and village sitting under the Eiger. This is the setting for the CLint Eastwood movie (Eiger Sanction). We follow the Eiger Trail just under the towering mountain ...all the way to Eiger Station. You will not want to move from the Terrace of the restaurant...We stay overnight in Grindelwald Blick Mountain Hotel, where you awake to a mountain wonderland. Hike 4-5 hours. Dinner, Breakfast
Day 2 - Hike down to Wengen then to the infamous village of Lauterbrunnern (Base Jumpers Hangout) and to the 'Air TIme Cafe' for a world class treat! We then transfer to the end of the valley and stay in Stechelberg at Alpenhof for a world class SWISS FONDUE...Hike - 3- 4 hrs.
Day 3 - Morning Trek up to the picture perfect Obersteinberg Hut in the upper Lauterbrunnen valley, perched in a alpine setting that will take your breath away..and not just the climb.
An overnight stay here is an experience unlike any other hut with the old fashioned rooms and authentic flare. IN the afternoon we climb to the Oberhorn Lake 90 min away.
Luxury comes in many varieties. Luxury of a special kind can be found at Mountain Hotel Obersteinberg. no running water, no electricity, but an abundance of romantic and nostalgic atmosphere. Hike 6 Hours (with Lake visit)
Day 4 - Across the mountain, down into the valley and back up to a the quaint village of Gimmewald, which has much history for me. This super cool place can be walked in 15min. and was my first Swiss Experience 22 years ago. I'll never forget waking up to the sound of cowbells and a view that almost looked fake...was so spectacular. We put up our feet and park our bags at Pension Gimmelwald, for a mountain side lunch or head up to Murren the next village up. Dinner, breakfast. Hiking - 5 hours
Day 5 - Very Challenging Day - From Gimmewald, after 2 hours we pass the Rotstockhut fur a well earned break and lunch. Then comes the challenge. Part 2 is over the Sefinnenfurge and into real Alpine land to the Gspaltenhorn Hut. This hut is incredible where it is perched and what it offers. After a challenging day, sitting on the hut deck and taking in all you see..you feel the worth of it all. Hike 7 hours
Day 6 - Our final full day together. Descending from our hut in the Kien Valley and then another steep long climb of 800m to Blumslialphut..situated 2800m in the sky. Our lunch break is here and then the real wowzer comes with our descent into paradise, the sky blue Oeschinnen Lake. ...where we go for a Skinny or 'Not so Skinny' Dip...this is amazing...We stay in our Lakeside Lodge for the night. Hike 7-8 hours
Day 7 - Free Day - to do as you please - and believe me, there is a lot to choose - hang around the lake, go for a boat ride, an optional hike with us or take a Mountain Yoga class with Karrie.
We then trek down to Kandersteg where we transfer back to Interlaken. We will be spending the night in Interlaken or in Lauterbrunnen.
- SCHILTHORN PEAK 2970m - a trek or race you will never forget!
Their are two options on this day but everyone will summit the Schilthorn!
1)You have the choice to take part in the organized Run called INFERNO HALF MARATHON - A real Mountain Run Experience is like none other - that provides food and support along the way in a energizing atmosphere...(race cost not included)
2) I will be taking anybody that absolutely does not want to do the run (but really we will be doing the same thing) - we would leave 2 hours earlier than race start.
It is a fabulous experience that I would love all to play in.
Hike/Power Climb - 4-7 hours - 2175m of elevation gained. The satisfaction running through your veins after this will last for days. I can already feel it!
Accommodations are extra - I can help you with booking if you are staying for the race and the extra night.
Olli and I will be transferring back to Germany on this day.
