A fantastic introduction to the delights of Swiss mountain walking through two famous regions. This tour is the ideal walking introduction to the Swiss Alps, offering you each day a range of walks often with differing grades and distances, so you can decide the nature of the walking, whether it be a high mountain trek along a Bergweg mountain path, or a valley stroll on a Wanderweg lower level trail. There are many opportunities for spending time sightseeing and utilizing the extensive mountain transport system to shorten walks, leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy good fayre in the valley towns and mountain villages. You travel to the two most spectacular and classical postcard regions of the Swiss Alps. The peaks of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau overlook the valley towns of Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen while the celebrated mountain town of Zermatt lies just below the towering Matterhorn. Our programme of walks allows you time to take the mountain railway to the Jungfraujoch the highest railway station in Europe at nearly 12,000 feet. The flower-strewn alpine meadows in summer around Wengen and Murren and upon the Schynige-Platte walk are an unforgettable experience.
