Day 1

We meet on the Brienzer Rothorn for our evening meal. After the meal we discuss the following day and check our equipment so that we are ready, then get an early night.

Day 2

After breakfast we start our hike. Up and down and up and down... that's how it goes over the Tannhorn and the Augstmatthorn and so on - until we reach the Harder. The views are incredible and constantly evolving. The blue lakes shimmer beneath our feet. Despite the tight schedule, we're sure to stop for breaks and take it all in, the view across to the Bernese Alps is also breathtaking.

Lunch is not included in the offer. We recommend bringing bars, dried fruits, nuts, or a sandwich. The amount you will need to drink depends on your individual needs and the length of the tour.

A mountain hut is not a hotel. Running water is not guaranteed and electricity is not available everywhere, so it is not always possible to charge batteries or phones. If you have special dietary needs, please inform us in advance so we can make arrangements with the hut.


Our tours and courses are led by IVBV certified mountain guides or mountain guide aspirants.
