Day 1: Höji Sulegg 2413m

Meet your guide in Isenfluh and take a small mountain cable car to the village of Sulwald. From there your tour will begin towards the Lobhorn Hut at 1954m. In the afternoon you will make your way up to Schärhubel and on to the summit of Sulegg at 2413m. A visit to this peak will grant you views down into Interlaken and to the stunning blue waters of Lake Brienz. You’ll enjoy a nice descent back down to the hut where you will settle in for the evening.

Day 2: Schwalmere 2777m

After a hearty breakfast you will set off towards the Lobhörner, a unique rock formation with striking towers exalted above the local terrain. You will pass beneath the towers and continue to the summit of Schwalmere. Enjoy the uninhibited views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau before deciding on your descent path. Depending on snow conditions, you will ski down to either Kiental or Soustal, to end your tour around mid-afternoon.
