Katie, you are a great guide, teacher, coach, interpreter, you are attentive, encouraging, and knowledgeable – you have made me love hiking, this beautiful town, simplicity and living each and every minute. Thank you seems inadequate but thank you.

I will never forget the sites and sounds of the ringing bells, waterfalls and Kandersteg tranquility and the gourmet meals and entertainment….Shevenell Mullen, 2006
Everything here is as it should be. Nothing to think about but getting to the top, looking out over the magnificent land, coming down, foot comfort, what to eat and how to enjoy ourselves the most every minute. Simple…….Shirley Dale Easley, 2003
This trip has made me grateful for so many things: good friends, safety, a sound body and mind and the beauty of Mother Nature. This trip has completely changed my life. Kathy, thank you so much for making my stay so enjoyable. You pushed my limits and showed me that I can do so many things that I never knew that I could do. I am so happy to have met such wonderful people and to have learned so much about myself.
I feel like I have spent two weeks in heaven. This place and the whole experience surpassed my wildest dreams. Thank you so much for this magical journey…Margo Swift 2007
The best thing besides the beautiful mountains, the quality of early morning light, the personal satisfaction of being able to propel myself to great heights, good exercise, fun for free, making music, was learning that there really are few things worth worrying about at the end of the day.
I have been greatly affected by the wide welcoming walls enfolding me, inviting me in to ever-wondrous surprises just over the crest, around a bend or up just 10 steps at a time. The beckoning trails have lured me and taught me more about myself than I perhaps was prepared to know. The constant guidance and encouragement got me to heights I never imagined possible. The absolute fun of shared living has been indescribable. I will hear always the sounds of Kandersteg – the water, the bells and the silence, constant backdrop to our shared laughter and tears.
Kathy, words cannot express how truly grateful I am for all your efforts. Thank you for allowing Kelsey and I to be part of your life. You made our time here very special.
The hikes have been wonderful and I love challenging myself. All I can say is that Spirit Adventure rocks!!
"The best part of everyday was returning back to Kandersteg and sitting in the yard. I would look back at the mountain or hut that we hiked to and I felt a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. It was so relaxing to just sit and talk of the days events and look at the beautiful mountains on all four sides and make plans for the next days adventure".
This hiking trip completed a 50-year-old dream of mine. It has met every expectation I had ever imagined in terms of hiking. What I hadn’t anticipated was the wonderful camaraderie that has been present during the entire 2 weeks. It was an extremely enjoyable experience.
I came. I hiked. I had the time of my life.
