Hiking Gstaad to Interlaken - Trip Overview
"The Bear Trail Hike "
The legendary passes you cross on this tour were once the preferred trail of bears. You'll cross over 5 of them during a continuous hike that explores the unusual beauty of the Swiss Alps. Hike from one valley to the next while spending the evening in 3-star village Inns. This route is designed for anyone able to walk up to 6 hr./day on trails that may include steady 2 - 3 hour climbs. However, for those who wish to take it easier on any given day, we have designed alternative routes and shortcuts along the way so that we may divide and regroup.
Days 1-2: Unspoiled Villages
From a small village of wooden architecture typifying the Berner Oberland walk past the cow farmers, through gorges and forest, along streams and across open slopes dotted with old barnyards decorated with prize cow bells. Then into a region known for sulfurous thermal waters and to the base of a beautiful waterfall at the far end of a glacial valley where our Inn awaits us.

Days 3-4: Craggy Passes & Narrow Valleys
Cross over a pass along an ancient mule trail where views of the impressive Weisshorn & lofty glaciers open up. Then at higher elevations a magnificent panoramic view of two glacial valleys opens up as we hike down into the valley through small pastures, lush forest and waterfalls.

Days 5-8: Craggy Pass & Serenity
Well-rested be ready to ascend to the Oeschinensee, considered by many as Switzerland's most beautiful Alpine lake en route to the "high doorway", a stunning pass high above the tree line. Then we make our way into the shear-walled valley within the Interlaken region--abundant in waterfalls, glaciers and tourist. Transfer to Interlaken station on day 8.
