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.

Trip Highlights

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

 
 

Swiss Delicacies

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! 

Testimonials

“Awesome tour! With amazing sights. Would even do it again. Had a day in Murren to ourselves to relax at the spa. Would highly recommend this trip! Mero is an awesome guide, feeds you Swiss chocolate the whole time, and makes wicked lunches for the hikes. You’d be a fool not to take a tour with him... Switzerland or any other tour he offers... I’ll definitely be looking into his biking tours.” -Joseph

“It was a great trip, just the right amount of hiking each day.” -James

“The Carpe Mundo Switzerland trip was amazing. It was an amazing value for the experience. The trip is one that any seasoned hiker that enjoys the outdoors should do! Room upgrades were a great added bonus for a bargain of a price. Already planning on using Carpe Mundo again for adventure travel.” -Spencer

“Our Carpe Mundo hiking trip to the Jungfrau was not only a fantastic, fun, challenging experience but an outstanding value. I had compared several top active travel companies before choosing Carpe Mundo to go hiking in Switzerland. For half the cost of an “self-guided” tour, Carpe Mundo provided a fully-guided, carefully-curated hiking experience. Our six-day trip included a variety of hiking options, and a full day of free time to pursue our own particular bucket-list of adventures – paragliding, mountain biking and climbing to the Piz Gloria, setting for James Bonds “On her Majesty’s Secret Service.” With small groups limited to just 10 guests, and accompanied by two leaders to coordinate all logistics, this fully-guided hiking tour more than met my expectations.” -Lorraine
