Nice but rather strenuous route, especially in the last part to Kleine Scheidegg. The road starts with asphalt and later it goes via nature trails to the steeper slopes. Enjoy the view on the way. The whole way can be done with a mountain bike.Show more

This hike leads along a wide, well-groomed path that runs along flowering alpine meadows to the Bachalpsee (Bachalp Lake). At the start of the hike there is a short but steep climb to the Gummihütte which must be tackled. Then you can walk to the blue jewel of the Bernese Alps. The sharp peaks of Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn and Finsteraarhorn on the other side of the valley are impressive. Vast meadows and numerous benches invite you to take a long break.Show more
