We booked a self-guided hiking trip in Switzerland with Alpenwild and loved every minute of it. They were very knowledgeable and easy to work with, paying attention to what we wanted to do and what level of hiking we were looking for. Different options were offered for hiking each day, with tips and advice that was always helpful. The hotels they booked for us were family-run and excellent. Everything unfolded smoothly with no surprises - a truly fabulous vacation. - C.R., Vancouver B.C.

Remember, space at favorite hotels often disappears quickly, so the earlier you get your reservations in, the better. For prime summer dates, try to firm up your plans by January or February for 2018 travel.

Alpenwild can handle the stressful details of arranging your own vacation itinerary in the Jungfrau region of Switzerland. Our hiking specialists have been arranging self-guided and independent travel throughout the Alps for over 30 years and we know you’ll love the Jungfrau. Your rail passes, hotel accommodations, and breakfasts and one dinner will be pre-arranged and prepaid so all you should worry about is enjoying the views.
