This hike covers a wide variey of terrain for such a one day hike, starting in dense forest and winding up through the trees before eventually emerging out of the tree line to the barren rocky plateau on which the Doldenhornhütte stands.
The Doldenhornhütte is situated directly below Doldenhorn, a prominent peak which towers high above the Kandersteg Valley. From the hut you have fantastic views of this peak, as well as down the alpine lake Oeschinensee which lies below the hut. We stop at the hut for lunch and to sample some alpine meat and cheese, as well as some delicious hot tea. After enjoying the view, we then hike down to Kandersteg taking a different route taking us back to the centre.
A great hike for scouts aged 10 and up, and a great way to see the Swiss tradition of High Alpine Huts.
