Self-guided Adventures in Switzerland


This is the perfect combination of exploring on your own, yet having someone help you plan a trip which is otherwise quite complex to put together.

-Mary Kolsrud

From hiking the Bernese Oberland Traverse to taking on the demanding Haute Route Hike, Switzerland has been a magnet for walkers and thrill-seekers alike for much of this century. In fact, we don't need to say much about Switzerland at all. The vistas, high alpine meadows, cheese and chocolate all speak for themselves. While Switzerland is known for ritzy accommodation and ski resorts that are frequented by celebrities, the mountain hut system in the Swiss Alps is older than in many other neighboring countries, thereby making hut accommodations simpler. In most Swiss Mountain Huts, only dormitory accommodation is available and meals are limited to whatever the hut decides to serve (there is usually a vegetarian option and a non-vegetarian option).

But for those not looking for a mountain hut experience, our Bernese Oberland Experience can be booked almost entirely in private rooms, and even includes a few optional via ferratas for the thrill-seekers.
