Bernese Oberland Trail Run Tour
July 18 - July 24
We’ll run inn-to-inn through the alpine pastures of the Bernese Oberland, with our bags transported for us! Enjoy views of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau during the day, and some of our favorite Swiss mountain hotels at night.
Trail running from inn to inn, with our bags transported for us is one of our favorite ways to see the Alps! Run the Alps’ trail running tour of the Bernese Oberland will traverse some of the most famous mountain terrain anywhere in the Alps, if not the world. We’ll run about 8-10 miles each day, taking plenty of time on the uphills, pausing frequently to take photographs, enjoy the scenery, and sample great food and drink en route. We’ll trail run over historic Grosse Scheidegg pass, then cruise along high alp pastures with sweeping views of the Eiger. In the mountain villages of Wengen and Mürren, we’ll finish with several days of trail running past high alp farms (including stops for some great lunches!), within sight of the Jungfrau, one of the most photographed mountains anywhere.
Our stages can be hiked in a full day or run in half a day, and we plan the itinerary to finish each day with plenty of time to relax. You will have your own bedroom and luggage every night. In the evening we’ll enjoy dinner together at our inn. These are often multi-course feasts, featuring local Swiss specialties, and will definitely be hearty, filling, well-earned and very delicious. We will leave one night in Grindelwald free, where you will have a chance to explore on your own.
