Switzerland: The Bernese Oberland

Cross country skiing in Kandersteg - 7 nights

  • 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 5 picnic lunches at traditional 3 star family run hotel
  • Gastronomic 5 course meal one night and 4 course meals on the other nights

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.

Our ski programme is both varied and flexible. The glistening 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. You are free to explore the local area at you leisure, however, if you prefer we can arrange tuition at a local ski school to get you started.

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!
