Switzerland: The Bernese Oberland

Cross country skiing in Kandersteg

  • Cross country skiing suitable for different ability levels
  • Stay in a picture-postcard Swiss village in the heart of the Bernese Oberland
  • Breakfast daily and 3 picnic lunches at traditional 3 star family run hotel
  • Gastronomic 5 course meal one night and 4 course meals on the other nights
  • Based on our popular 7 night, Cross country skiing in Kandersteg

Your base for this holiday is Kandersteg, one of the last surviving picture-postcard Swiss villages in the heart of the Bernese Oberland. It's incredibly pretty (with streets full of cuckoo-clock style houses) and very much unspoiled. The combination of high trails and wonderful open plateaux make it a superb cross-country ski choice for all ages and abilities.

As your holiday is self guided, our ski programme is both varied and flexible as you're staying in the same hotel throughout your holiday. The glistening ski trails are beautifully marked, easy to follow and incredibly picturesque. They undulate through snowy pines by the hotel and extend up to the sunny plateaux at Oeschinensee and Sunnbuel, which are easily reached by chairlift or cable car.

We've included unlimited free rides on the local bus network, giving you the opportunity to extend your skiing further from the hotel, which is situated on the edge of the village and offers real 'home from home' comfort levels. If you visit Kandersteg in January you can step back in time over 100 years during Belle Epoque week (19 -26 January 2020.) There are period costumes, sledging and bob-sleigh races and an afternoon tea dance! The local ski school is an excellent way to get you started and you're able to pre-book lessons if required.

Reviews

Everyone who goes on a Headwater holiday will be emailed a link to our post-holiday questionnaire where they can give us an honest assessment of all aspects of their holiday - everything from how quickly we answer the phone to how clean the hotels were - plus an overall rating and comments about their holiday.

Any feedback collected is posted to our website, so that people can make an informed decision based on past experiences before heading off on holiday. We don’t edit the reviews, the only thing we do is proofread them and alter any typos, where necessary, to ensure they are easy to read for everyone. All reviews will be published (except in certain extreme circumstances), and a member of the Headwater team will respond to any constructive criticisms/comments under the reviews, at their discretion. So, for the real tales, twists and turns of our holidays, look no further than the reviews from our previous travellers.
