Overview

Book
This is a simply superb Alpine trekking holiday combining glacier walking with some easy climbing in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland. Close to the picturesque ski town of Kandersteg in Switzerland, the Bernese Oberland is one of the most impressive mountain groups in the entire European Alps. This adventurous glacier-walking holiday makes a high-level trekking traverse of the eastern section of the range, with some easy climbing sections. During this high level traverse of the Bernese Oberland we will be trekking among a collection of dramatic Alpine peaks including the famous trilogy of Eiger (3970m), Monch (4099m) and Jungfrau (4158m). We will negotiate high and rugged terrain, including the Aletsch alpine glacial system which has at its heart, the famous junction of glaciers known as Konkordia. Trekking across several airy alpine mountain passes and spending nights in spectacularly situated Bernese Oberland refuges, we also make an ascent to the snow-capped summit of the Abeni Flue (3962m).

From this high vantage point, our climbing effort is rewarded with a magnificent alpine panorama that includes the Matterhorn, distant Mont Blanc and the stunning pyramidal peak of the Finsteraarhorn (4274m), the highest summit in the Bernese Oberland. This is an excellent walking holiday and an ideal introduction to glacier trekking and climbing technically easy Alpine peaks. This holiday can be combined with our Bernese Oberland Haute Route West to create a sensational complete traverse of the Bernese Oberland.

A beautifully conceived and executed route by the trip leader. Only you do this route and for this reason there was hardly anyone else on it. Thanks for a well organised and beautifully led trip.
