Switzerland, EigerTrip Overview

Come with us for 11 days of spectacular scenery, cultural immersion and a series of guided hikes in the Swiss Alps!
 

An extensive network of transportation has made the Swiss mountains a paradise for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, snow walking (and climbing too!). This Swiss trip has been designed for those wishing to participate in “Day Hikes” while staying in “4-star" rated mountain hotels.

 

The group hikes will be at a casual pace. Magnificent ridge hikes, with extensive views with easier access via trains, gondolas and ski lifts may be used to get to the higher altitudes.

 

We will visit two areas in Switzerland: Graubùnden (St. Moritz area) and the Jungfrau region (The Eiger, The Mönch and The Jungfrau). We will divide our time between the towns of Pontresina (Graubünden) and Wengen (a pedestrian only town in the Bernese Oberland). The infinite beauty of these areas and its architecture coupled with all the diverse activities one can find available, will certainly please those that hike (and those that do not…). The Eiger awaits our arrival…

  • Hiking The Eiger and the surrounding areas.
  • Various hikes in the Engadine mountains - a high Alpine valley region in the eastern Swiss Alps.
