Day 1 After the welcome in Gypsera and a short ride on the chairlift, the tour starts high above the Schwarzsee, whose name, according to legend, comes from the giant Gargantua, who is said to have washed his dirty feet in the water. The view into one of the wildest valleys of Switzerland, the Breccaschlund, is fascinating. The path climbs gently to the Euschelspass, past the rugged rocky peaks of the Spitzfluh, to dreamy Jaun. (Walking time without breaks: approx. 3 h, distance: 6.5 km, ascent/descent: 190/660 altitude meters).
Day 2 From the Jaun pass the route leads over a wide, gently snowed-in high moor landscape to the ridge of the Hundsrügg 2047m. The panorama is hard to beat: to the west the rocky jagged peaks of the Gastlosen, also known as the Swiss Dolomites, to the south and east the view of the Simmental and Saanenland and on the horizon the mighty peaks of Les Diablerets to the Wildhorn and Wildstrubel to Jungfrau, Mönch and Eiger. Then follows the descent to Sparenmoos and Zweisimmen. (Walking time without breaks: 9.2 km, ascent/descent: 640/510 altitude meters).
Day 3 The train facilitates the first ascent up the Bettelberg to the Leiterli. Leisurely it goes towards the Trütlisberg pass. The crossing gives a particularly beautiful view into the lonely Turbachtal. On the other side, far below, lies the dreamy "Louwenesee" and today's destination, Lauenen. (Walking time without breaks: 3.30 h, distance: 8.8 km, ascent/descent: 430/1140 altitude meters).
Day 4 Across open alpine pastures and through the sparse mountain forest the path climbs up to the broad ridge of Höje Wispile 1857 m or to Chrine 1660 m and from there it goes step by step down to the young Saane and to Gstaad. (Walking time without breaks: 3-4 h, distance: 7-8 km, ascent/descent: 620-750 altitude meters).
