The Bear Trek is the most popular section of the Via Alpina 1, a longer route that crosses the Swiss Alps. During the Bear Trek, also known as the Bärentrek in German, you will complete 6 out of the 20 stages of the Via Alpina 1, from Meiringen to Lenk. During this trek, you will walk from one valley to the next while enjoying the great views of the towns below and the peaks above, like the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau.
On this 8-day tour, we have included the accommodation in Meiringen and Lenk before and after the trek. During the 6 stages of the Bärentrek, you will cross mountain passes, you will discover breathtaking waterfalls, shimmering lakes, forestes and moorlands, and you will try exquisite traditional local dishes. Get your hiking boots ready and discover this Swiss gem in the Alps!
We will take care of arranging accommodation on the Via Alpina 1 for you. We will also provide you with a detailed itinerary for every stage and instructions on how to get to the trailhead.

During your Via Alpina 1, you will spend your nights in mountain huts. In the mountain huts we normally only book dormitories, but we can look into private rooms on request. If the private rooms are fully booked or not available in the hut, we automatically book a bed in dormitories for you. Please note that private rooms are more expensive and there will be an additional charge for this.
Every morning breakfast is waiting for you. We will arrange this for you as well. This allows you to travel lighter and have one less thing to worry about. Bear in mind that lunch and dinner are not included, but it can be purchased in the huts.
Accommodation before and after the trek is included. Breakfast is part of your stay.
