Hike the impressive 'Bear trek' Trail along 3 Swiss mountains

Discover Switzerlands most impressive parts. When hiking on the Beartrek you travel a unique route that passes glaciers and spectacular passes. The route “Via Alpina” leads along the three most famous Swiss mountains “Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau” through valleys and canyons to the well known ski-resort Adelboden-Lenk. Most likely you won’t meet any bears on this tour but the route has its name from the time when only game could walk these paths. Today the trails are in a very good condition but still this tour is not an easy walk. During the course of your hike you reach peaks and summits where the spectacular beauty to the Swiss Alps rewards you for your efforts.
