Activity overview

Hike up to one of the very special local huts around Kandersteg, the Doldenhorn Hut.
The Hut is situated on the edge of a cliff in a full view of Kandersteg and below the towering massifs of Doldenhorn and Fisistock. 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 to 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.
