Bernese Oberland West Tour - Switzerland - 5 Days

This tour provides a mix of sensations. On the way from Les Diablerets to Kandersteg we will cross different alpine environments: On the one hand cosy mountains and huts in complete solitude and on the other areas where the human touch has arrived.

In any case, we will cross from west to east a very interesting area of the Alps, quite different from other more familiar routes.
