Spirit Adventure offers unique hiking and travel adventures personally designed to suit your pace, whether it be walking in an alpine meadow, strolling through a vineyard, climbing a mountain peak or relaxing in a panaramic train as you roll through the countryside. Summer tours are based in Kandersteg, Switzerland, in the heart of the Berner Oberland mountains. Guests experience the heart of Switzerland's rural life in a quiet village where cheese is still made on the mountain and sheep and cows have the right of way on the streets. It is one of the few old pockets of Switzerland that are left. It is this part of Switzerland that will become a part of you.
"No words, pictures or travel brochures could have prepared me for the sight of Kandersteg. The sun is a spotlight on the wild and jagged peaks creating shadows that stretch and move continuously in the upper valleys. Glaciers drape like frosting on the monstrous pinnacles that completely surround the village. Red, yellow and blue wings of paragliders hang in the air. The villagers are going about their daily tasks, shopping, gardening, chatting, seemingly oblivious to the magnificence that is literally taking my breath away." Shirley Dale Easley 2006
Kandersteg, home for the guests of Spirit Adventure's hiking tours, is a cozy mountain village protected by mountains giants with names like the Bire, the Blumlisalp and the Gellihorn. Guests relax in a comfortable chalet after a long day on the trail, cooking evening meals together or enjoying the culinary delights in one of the many family restaurants in the village. It is here that guests will become part of their new family of neighbors who will know them by name by the time they leave.
