Walking in the Bernese Oberland
Located in the heart of Switzerland, the Bernese Oberland is one of the most magnificent regions for hiking in Europe. From its deep valleys to looming mountains and lush pine forests, this area embodies the classic postcard image of the Alps. Why not try some local mountain cheese, Bergkäse, which is sold from honesty boxes at farms you pass en route? A perfect accompaniment to your picnic lunch on the trail.
To get a taster for all the Bernese Oberland has to offer, embark on our Best of the Bernese Oberland trip and walk in the footsteps of some of the most impressive alpine athletes like Ueli Steck. (but make sure to avoid climbing the Eiger North Face, like he did!) Spend your evenings exploring the charming traditional villages of Grindelwald, Murren and Wengen, always accompanied by cowbells ringing faintly in the distance. Epic trails which cross through the Bernese Oberland, such as the Via Alpina and the Grindelwald Trail, are also waiting to be discovered. Or why not indulge in traditional Swiss cheese and chocolate on our Trails of Gruyeres and Gstaad as you learn how they are made.
