Experience the beauty of nature on foot

In the Canton of Bern, the visitors can discover 10,000 kilometres of hiking and trekking routes. Whether sporty or leisurely, the routes have one thing in common: pure nature.
The trekking options that the Bernese Oberland has to offer are many and varied and extend from one-day hikes to tours that last a week. One common feature stands out from the various routes: surrounded by majestic landscape views, this is a great place to get away from it all. The bear trek is a must for people with plenty of endurance. Watched over by the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, the tour, which is among the most beautiful in Switzerland, leads past imposing glaciers and ravines.

Adventure for the whole family

If you are looking for something new, you cannot miss trekking with animals. On the two-day sumpter hike, you will go from the Simmental over the Rawilpass – accompanied by mules used for the transportation of luggage. Trekking à la Geissenpeter in Interlaken guarantees fun for the whole family. Tame goats carry the luggage on the hike, and entertain the party with their bleating. Lama (German) and horse trekking in the Jungfrau Region and Gstaad bring a beam to the faces of young old. The options here range from half-day excursions to several-day hikes with an overnight stay in the tipi tent.

Past glaciers, over hill and dale

Glacier hikes are a special adventure. For example, the circular walk on the Blüemlisalp, which takes just under four hours, provides fascinating insights into the world of ice. On the way, nature lovers pass glare ice, firn, and impressive crevasses – with the breath-taking panorama of the Bernese Alps always in view.
