Tour itinerary

Luggage drop-off in Zweisimmen. From Zweisimmen you hike up over the "Gubi" and on to the Seebergsee, where a break at the cool water of the Seebergsee is worthwhile. The path continues into the Diemtigtal. Throughout the day you will encounter many grazing cows that give valuable milk.

Day 2: Grimmialp - Oey

The second day leads through the Diemtigtal Nature Park, along streams, across flower-filled meadows and through shady forests. Watch out for the magnificent Simmental houses along the way. Richly decorated, they are witnesses of times long past and tell exciting stories.

Day 3: Oey – Gurnigel

You take the cable car up to the Stockhorn. The views of the Bernese Alps, Lake Thun and the Diemtigtal are unique. Here starts the unique panoramic hike along the peaks of the Gantrisch chain to the Leiterepass and from here downhill to the Gurnigel watershed. On the way you will pass by the contemplative and wild Walalp, where you will find the living quarters of a small but central inhabitant. The dung beetle may not be the prettiest creature on the alp, but it is quite important for the ecological balance. Details: approx. 13 kilometers, ↑ 635 m ↓ 1,040 m, duration: 4.5 h

Day 4: Gurnigel – Schwarzsee

Day 6: Jaun – Gruyères/Bulle | Abreise
