Bus Kandersteg - Selden, then a nice hike down the valley back to Kandersteg

Detailed description

The Gastern valley is one of the most spectacular valleys in Switzerland. Enjoy a guided hike through this beautiful valley and absorb some amazing scenery. This hike is focused on younger Scouts but is suitable for everyone. We take the bus to Selden and then hike to Heimritz where you can enjoy views of Kandersteg’s snow capped peaks and ancient glaciers.  The rest of the day is a leisurely cruise downhill to the Centre, passing through a gorge.
