FOR WOMEN: ENGELBERG – INTERLAKEN – A GREAT LITTLE OUTDOOR ADVENTURE

1 Angel, 5 Mountainlakes and Myriads of Stars | 3 Tage

save bookmark

In Engelberg, the cool glacier wind welcomes you as if it were the voice of angels. The snow- and ice-capped Titlis stands as a landmark high above the monastery village. Under its spell, you hike past crystal-clear mountain lakes on the Via Alpina route to Tannalp and marvel at the incredible starry sky from your sleeping bag at night - the ultimate nightlife! Then the trail leads along the Sbrinz route, on which the hard cheese was exported to Italy from the Middle Ages onwards, into the Aare valley and the e-bike pulls you comfortably along the last stretch of the Lake Brienz to Interlaken.

This offer is exclusively for women, led by a female hiking guide. The trekking is part of the 100% Women campaign of Switzerland Tourism.

  • Treat yourself to a refreshing swim in the shimmering turquoise waters along the Four Lakes Hike, one of the most beautiful panoramic routes in the Swiss Alps.
  • Sleep one night under the open sky, well guarded by myriads of stars and the crackling of the campfire.
  • Discover the lonely Gental on the Via Sbrinz and hike through the impressive Aare Gorge
  • Ride your e-bike to the thundering Reichenbach Falls, the supposed death place of Sherlock Holmes, before gently surfing along the shore of the number 5, Lake Brienz, to touristy Interlaken

Tag 1 From the Jochpass, the start of the four-lake hike, the view sweeps to the deep blue Trübsee, the idyllically embedded Engstlensee and far behind you already discover the Tannalpsee, today's destination. Only Lake Melchsee is still hidden behind a range of mountains. After the welcome, you reach the starting point comfortably in the air with the gondola and chair lift. The panorama trail offers an impressive view and leads over alpine pastures to Tannalp. In the alpine cheese dairy, cheese specialities such as Sbrinz are produced daily using traditional methods. Enjoy a delicious aperitif and an Älpler dinner before rolling out your sleeping mat on the alpine meadow and slipping into your sleeping bag. The view of the night sky is unique. And when you start counting the myriads of stars, you will slowly drift off to sleep. A toilet and, if necessary, a multi-bed room are available near the night camp. (Walking time: 2 h, distance: 6.5 km, ascent/descent: 220/450 meters)

Tag 2 Today the sun wakes you up and paints the surroundings in a glowing orange dress, what an amazing ambience! After breakfast, the trail leads you to Engstlenalp and Engstlensee. A swim or even just putting your feet in the water will refresh you. You hike through the lonely Gental on the Via Sbrinz and visit the impressive Aare Gorge in the afternoon. It was formed by glaciers over thousands of years. In the evening you reach Meiringen and the hotel. (Walking time: approx. 2 h, distance: 8 km, ascent/descent: 90/600 meters)

Tag 3 The e-bike is already waiting in front of the hotel. Get in the saddle and off you go. The Reichenbach Falls are the first stop. The nostalgic rack railway takes you up to the thundering waterfall. The same fate as the water that falls over rocks into the valley befell Sherlock Holmes, who supposedly lost his life in a fictitious fight at this very spot. The journey continues more quietly, along the shores of Lake Brienz, on a road with little traffic right next to the water. And if the water of the mountain lakes of the last few days was too cold for you, you could now dive into Lake Brienz and enjoy the magnificent panorama from the water. Finally, you arrive in touristy Interlaken, where this "great little outdoor adventure" comes to an end. (E-bike time: 3 h, distance: 30 km, ascent/descent: 450/475 meters)
