"Meiringen: Panoramas Of The Swiss Alps - 8 Days" is a private trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Walk beneath the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau for unrivalled panoramas of the Swiss Alps. This is a 'centre based' self-guided walking holiday in the Swiss Alps. Unpack only once in our inviting, independent 4* hotel in Meiringen and choose from a wide selection of walks to undertake in the next 6 days. Getting around in Switzerland is so easy that you can fill your time with excellent day walks.
Meiringen is the perfect centre for walking holidays for all grades. There are over 300km of well-marked footpaths, which range from gentle strolls to high ridges and even glacier exploring. In spring you can follow the melting snows into meadows of glorious Alpine flowers. In summer the high ridges and rugged glacial scenery become accessible. In autumn the landscape is painted with a riot of colour as the first frosts come. The potential for walking is limitless and our team have prepared for you route notes, maps and GPX files for the best routes in the area. Come rain or shine and whatever level of fitness you prefer each day, there'll be a suitable route to choose from.
Meiringen has none of the trappings of mass tourism. It is a small market town with excellent shops, banks and facilities. Thankfully, it remains unspoiled and very Swiss. The local people are welcoming, kind and hospitable.
The Alpine town is a natural transport hub situated at the convergence of three of Switzerland’s major passes. From here it is possible to set out each day in a different direction using the incredible network of cable cars, postbuses and mountain railways. You can reach the high places quickly and easily without the necessity of long uphill climbs out of the valley.
*Meiringen is on the main railway line from Luzern to Interlaken and trains run to and from those towns on an hourly timetable. Interlaken is a 30-minute journey and Luzern is 1 hour 10 minutes. Transfers from Zürich airport are a pleasure with the last leg of the journey into the mountains possible on the spectacular narrow-gauge Brünig line. (Departures will vary as the Interlaken route is more direct). Meiringen is also the centre for Postbus routes in the Eastern Oberland.
