Walking Tour 2

Walking Tour 2

Day 1 Bassersdorf (Zurich), Switzerland

Upon landing we pick you up from Zurich Airport (Kloten) in our mini bus and take you to our hotel in Bassersdorf in time for our first dinner and evening together. This is a time to meet other tour members and be briefed in more detail about the tour.

Day 2 Gasthaus Meglisalp, Switzerland

After breakfast we walk from Wasserauen at the base of the Alpsteins past the Seealpsee to the Gasthaus Meglisalp nestled in a valley below the highest peaks of the Alpsteins all around us. The Meglisalp is a small alpine community which inhabits the area in summer only in order to graze and milk cattle.

Day 3 Rotstein Hutte, Switzerland.

Today we head up to the highest saddle in the Alpsteins between the peaks of Altmann and Santis. Here the Rotstein Hutte is situated at just over 2,200 metres. The walk to this point is a little over 2 hours but almost all of it uphill to the highest accommodation on our 7 day tour!

Day 4 Alpenhof Stechelberg, Switzerland.

We head back down though the Alpsteins today and return to the bus at Wasserauen and head to the Jungfrau region and settle into the Alpenhof before a short afternoon walk to the Obersteinberg with breathtaking views of the Jungfrau and the Eiger mountains!

Day 5 Alpenhof Stechelberg, Switzerland.

Today we have a number of options but if the weather is at its best we will take the cog railway to the top of the Jungfraujoch and enjoy a 45 minute walk on the glacier round to the Monchhochutte with spectacular views down the Aletgletscher, the longest glacier in western Europe!

A truly memorable day in the land of snow and ice.

Day 6 Alpenhof Stechelberg, Switzerland.

Today we walk up the valley behind Stechelberg through Obersteinberg and the make our way across to Gimmelwald before heading back down to the Alpenhof. At the end of the valley above Obersteinberg we have time for a picnic lunch at a crystal clear lake close to the snowline with views of the Jungfrau and a host of other minor peaks all around us. Quiet, pristine and tranquil!

 

Day 7 Return to Zurich Airport

Today our trip ends with a four hour drive back to Zurich over the spectacular Brunig Pass and an array of scenic and cultural memories you will never forget.
