Day 2

Kandersteg: Indian summer in the unspoilt valley of Gasterntal

Autumn with its mild temperatures and blaze of golden colours is the perfect time of year to explore the Gasterntal valley. This high-alpine valley is the starting point for lots of hiking tours, for instance to the Gasterespitz and Lötschen Pass. Less elevated, but no less spectacular is the approx. three-hour hike from the Berghotel Waldhaus to Selden, which follows the Kander and takes you along mountain pastures and cosy resting places.
