Switzerland - July 2010

    Hiking in the Bernese Oberland 3rd July - 11th July

The Bernese Oberland is a beautiful mountain region with a dramatic skyline, deep gorges and traditional Alpine villages. Home to snow-capped Alpine giants such as the Eiger, Jungfrau and Mönch, it forms the longest chain of continuous peaks in the Alps. Yet it has quiet trails, flower-filled meadows and high mountain pastures.

Accommodation is in the Youth Hostel 'Albert Wander Haus' which is situated in the idyllic little village of Leissingen right on the Lake of Thun. It has it own private beach and offers stylish, comfortable rooms, many with a lake view.

We will do day walks using local public transport.

The approximate cost for this 9 day trip is flight around 180 at the moment and accommodation including breakfast about 270. Not included are meals and internal transport.

Do you want to walk in this area? If the answer is yes, here is your chance: there are still some places left! If you are interested, please contact:
