The Alps are one of the most iconic and beloved mountain ranges in the world, and for good reason. Our six day Swiss hiking tour will take you to some of the most beautiful places in Switzerland, and you will surely fall in love with this incredible nation as we explore a hiker's paradise in the Jungfrau region.
There are a lot of incredible things that we experience on this trip, but here are some of our favorites:
- Experience Switzerland off the beaten track
- Hike to an array of incredible mountain and glacier vistas and swim in secluded Alpine lakes
- Dine on delicious, authentic Swiss mountain cuisine: more varieties of cheese, sausage, wine, and chocolate than you could ever imagine!
- Sleep at cozy mountain huts and chalets, run by local Swiss dairy farmers
You will have a tough time deciding whether you enjoy hiking or eating more- both are such a delight! We will sample some of Switzerland's finest wines (enjoy these while you can- Swiss wines are rarely exported), enjoy cheese fresh from the farms we hike past (including delicacies such as fondue and raclette), and will take breaks while hiking to enjoy delicious chocolate with incredible views. In addition to these well known specialties, there will be plenty of scrumptious home cooked meals where you will be introduced to typical Swiss dishes that you did not even know existed. Best of all, you can enjoy this food guilt-free as a result of all the hiking!
Trip Difficulty: Challenging
This is our most physically challenging trip that we offer- after all, we are hiking in the Alps! However, the incredible vistas and charming towns are definitely worth the effort. We carry small backpacks to transport clothes and necessities while on the hike, but no need to carry food, sleeping bags or tents. The elevation gain some days is more than 3,000 feet, however there are several opportunities to opt for an easier day by taking a bus or gondola part of the way to the next destination. Our wonderful leaders will be there to help, encourage and guide you, and the sense of accomplishment you get from completing such an incredible hike will stay with you for the rest of your life!
