We then descend through beautiful forests, past majestic waterfalls and past the Seealpsee and then hop in the bus for a short 1.5 hour drive deep into the Vorarlbergs of Austria and stay the next 3 nights at the beuautiful ski resort of Damuls. We take a cable car to the base of the Mittagspitz and then undertake the breathtaking 3 hour round trip walk to its summit, stopping along the way for coffee and cake at one of the scenic cafes with panoramic views of the snow-capped alps in every direction!

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!
