Situated in a high mountain valley in the Bernese Oberland, Kandersteg is very much a traditional Swiss village. It has many charming wooden chalets and houses, the oldest dating back to the Middle Ages. Since the first hotel was built in 1789 Kandersteg has slowly developed into an uncluttered, peaceful and unspoilt resort with many of the best things that Switzerland has to offer. The natural landscape is truly beautiful. Snow-covered meadows and wooded lower slopes are surrounded by the high peaks of Blemlisalphorn, Doldenhorn and Lohner, rising to over 12,000ft. Come December, (usually) the first snow descends on the village transforming it into a winter paradise, allowing for the perfect setting for our winter walks. Kandersteg offers around 35 miles of marked winter walking paths, many of which are in the valley and on the lower slopes. We can walk to the Oeschi forest, enchanting with beautiful snow- covered trees. And perhaps take a steady climb to the viewpoint Risetenegg, which rewards us with a wonderful view of the whole village of Kandersteg. We will make use of the chair lifts or cable cars to gain height for some spectacular walks, which otherwise would be beyond the grade. As with all winter€tivities snow cannot be guaranteed. However, the walks are equally spectacular on snowshoes or walking boots.
