Hiking + Yoga + Meditation in Swiss Alps

Kandersteg valley, with its beautiful lake Oeschinensee, is an oasis for guests from all over the world. Surrounding majestic mountains create a paradise for walkers and hikers, climbers and paragliders alike, while couples and families are attracted to some of the most unique attractions that the valley offers, including the International Scout Centre.

Exploring, camping and hiking in Switzerland’s mountains and valleys will not disappoint anyone who has dreamed of visiting the Alps. The richness of the rural mountain landscapes, complemented with the possibility for daily yoga and pranayama routines to gain the maximum health benefits from the environment, lead to a wonderfully rewarding hike through the alpine scenery. In addition, the possibility to visit some of Switzerland’s hidden treasures and historic buildings like the church from 1510 or the cantonal monument SamisHus from 1556, all in the beautiful hamlet of Kandersteg, make for an unforgettable experience. Nestled in the Kander Valley, Kandersteg is surrounded by impressive waterfalls, snow-capped peaks, many reaching to over 12,000 feet high, lush alpine meadows, rich forests and beautifully preserved farms.

Welcome in the Bernese Alps: KANDERSTEG surrounded by steep mountains is located on the upper end of the Kandertal valley in the Kander river basin.
