Your Holiday Itinerary - Walking in the Swiss Alps
Day 1 - UK to Zurich
Today we'll fly to Zurich and transfer by rail to the pretty, traffic-free village of Wengen. After settling in we'll head out for a walk around the village and afterwards you'll have time at leisure. This evening we'll get to know one another better over a welcome drink and dinner at the hotel.
Day 2 - Schynige Platte and Bönigen
A Walk 14km/8.7mi – 3.5hrs
After breakfast we'll take a short train ride to Lauterbrunnen. From here the first of our guided walks takes us along the White Lütschine and the Lütschine Rivers to the village of Wilderswil. Here we'll board a nostalgic cogwheel train and wind our way up the mountain to Schynige Platte where we'll be greeted by alphorn players. Enjoy your packed lunch in the company of your travelling companions and perhaps take a stroll around the Botanical Alpine Garden, which is home to more than 600 species of plants.
After returning to Wilderswil we'll continue our walk to Bönigen. This picture-perfect village on the shores of Lake Brienz is surrounded by beautiful natural scenery and after time to relax, we'll travel to Interlaken and then back to Wengen by train. Dinner will be served at the hotel this evening.
Day 3 - Trümmelbach Falls, Allmendhubel and Muerren
B Walk 10.1km/6.3mi – 3 hrs
We'll take the train to Lauterbrunnen again this morning and walk along the valley to the Trümmelbach Falls. We'll have time to discover this magnificent site, a series of 10 glacier-fed waterfalls hidden away inside a mountain, before continuing on foot to Stechelberg. From here we'll take a cable car to Gimmelwald and then continue our walk to Muerren, admiring impressive views of the north face of the Eiger along the way. We'll travel to the summit of Allmendhubel by funicular and if you've already eaten your packed lunch, a lovely restaurant here serves local specialities, drinks and delicious cakes.
We will follow the trail back down to Muerren and descend to Lauterbrunnen by train and cable car, returning to Wengen by train. Dinner is at the hotel this evening.
Day 4 - Wengen
We have left today free for you to explore. Why not head out with your travelling companions and make use of your Bernese Oberland Pass so you can explore the region at your leisure. We'll gather as a group again this evening to enjoy dinner at the hotel.
Day 5 - Männlichen and Kleine Scheidegg
C Walk 12 km/7.5miles – 4.5 hours
After breakfast we'll take a cable car to Männlichen, the start-point for today's walk. We walk along the eastern flank of Tschuggen Alp to Honegg.

After this, we pass through alpine pastures on our walk down to Alpiglen, following the trail to Grindelwald.
