The journey is the destination: Trekking in Bern means freedom, pleasure and adventure

Whether you are there to unwind, to discover nature or to challenge yourself, Bern has the right trekking and hiking routes for every taste.
The best way to escape from the everyday life is to be out and about in the fresh air. The circa 10,000 km of hiking and trekking routes which run through the Canton of Bern are the perfect way to get close to nature. Hikers are simply spoiled for choice, whether it is a hike through high-alpine areas or charming hilly countryside with views on Lake Thun, Brienz or Biel. A special highlight of the Bernese Oberland is the breathtaking panoramic views of the UNESCO World Heritage site Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch.

A perfect route for every taste and every age

You are free for a whole week? Off you go to the “Bärentrek” (bear trail). This hiking tour leads you past spectacular mountain passes, along imposing glaciers and through deep gorges while at the same time you are being watched by the three legendary Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks. Overnight stays in mountain huts add to the feeling of adventure. Those who want to experience the wild side of nature simply must visit the numerous gorges in the Bernese Oberland or the Bernese Jura. Families with children should explore the many theme hiking routes on offer. They educate children in a playful way with information about flora and fauna, Swiss legends and art.
