Doldenhorn Hut Hike
The hike starts on the valley floor. Explore the forest on the east face of the valley and hike up and over the tree line. Arrive at a rocky plateau where the hut is situated and enjoy one of the most magnificent views around here. This is a very enjoyable hike and gives you the opportunity to see the stunning scenery of Kandersteg from a different point of view.
