What to expect

Full-day hike in Grindelwald and Wengen, Switzerland, itinerary:

Your guide will take you to the most modern cable car in the world. Enjoy a 15 minutes ride with great views and appreciate the Eiger north face, right next to you.
From the top cable car station, we start hiking, very close from the glacier, where you can appreciate the ice and the majestic mountains Eiger (3970m), Mönch (4107m) and Jungfrau (4158m).

We hike downhill to Kleine Scheidegg, passing the artificial lake Fallboden and also a very small museum showing the ascent routes to mount Eiger. From Kleine Scheidegg we take an alternative and beautiful route to Wengen. We will stop for a break in a very quiet place, beside a stream and surrounded by green meadows.  

Hiking downhill, you can appreciate the beautiful views, with green pastures, streams and, hopefully, some cows. Further away you can see Mürren, a car free village, right on the top of the cliffs from Lauterbrunnen Valley.

 The last part of the trail is in the pine forest, which is great during hot days. Feel the pine fragrance before you arrive in Wengen. Here, we will do a small walk to see the car free village before we go back on the mountain, making our way to Grindelwald. The views over Lauterbrunnen valley are stunning. We will have the opportunity to take the last pictures before we take a 20 minutes cable car back to Grindelwald.
