FULLY BOOKED! A long weekend of hiking, based in the alpine village of Grindelwald, including a day hike on the famous Eiger Trail!
- The Faulhorn peak at 2681 m, with its panoramic views of the turquoise Brienz Lake and, in the other direction, the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.
- The Eiger Trail that runs close to the foot of the Eiger North Face, with wonderful views towards the Wetterhorn and the Grosse Scheidegg.
- The scenic “blue jewel” of Bachalp Lake, whose glacial deep blue water reflects the Schreckhorn.
- The spectacular rock and ice masses of the Eiger Glacier towering above us on the trail down to Kleine Scheidegg.
