Grindelwald not, Bern
 
MAKE YOUR LAST DAY OF 2017 MEMORABLE
Take a train to Grindelwald and snowshoe the Eiger Trail.

This impressive hike taking in stunning views of the Eiger North Face initially leads over open terrain, past alp huts and cheese storehouses towards Hubelwald forest. Clearings reveal views spanning from the Faulhorn, the Grosse Scheidegg, Wetterhorn and Finsteraarhorn to the 1800-metre-high north face of the Eiger. Following the forest path, the route winds its way towards the Tschuggen ski piste and then through the Itramenwald to the Brandegg mountain restaurant. Where we will stop for a while for a drink or two, before descending to Grindelwald from the Brandegg Station and catching the 16.19 train home (arrives Lausanne 19.16 plenty of time to get dressed and go out for NYE)

Grade: Easy
Distance: 5.5 kms
Descent: 374 m
Ascent: 88 m
Hike Duration: 2 h.15 mins

MEETING SPOT: Grindelwald Train Station (front steps) at 11.10 AM
We will then walk to the Grindelwald-Männlichen gondola which is our starting point and buy a ticket.
