Therese May, British Prime Minister, after a recent holiday to the Alps
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, such as the Dhammapala Buddhist Monastery and historic buildings like the village church from 1510 or the cantonal monument SamisHus from 1556, all in the beautiful hamlet of Kanderstag, 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.
Overall, upto 550 km of walking, hiking and mountain trails in and around Kanderstag can equip you with the best that Switzerland has to offer.
