Three Valleys Hike Kandersteg Switzerland

Activity overview

A true Alpine hiking experience. Sleeping in a hut nearly 2’000 m over the sea level, you will get to see three different valleys from different perspectives and reaching a maximum altitude of 2'735 m.

This hike is your chance to visit three different valleys on the same trip. Starting at 14:00 the first day from the centre, sleep in the Ueschinen hut at 1'890 meters. The next day you will gain some elevation and get to see lovely sceneries from many different places. At the end of the hike, we will take the cable car down to KISC.
