Hi, my wife and I are avid hikers but have never hiked in the alps, only the Canadian Rockies. We actually lived in Switzerland for a few months one winter skiing but have never been in the summer. I was wondering if there's a list of generally agreed upon "best hikes" in the swiss alps? I'm having trouble figuring out what the highlights are. We would probably have time for 10-15 days of hiking. I found this list online, is it pretty good? If not please share which hikes you don't recommend from the list and which you would prioritize higher that are not on it, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello qwibbled,

I don't know all hiking areas listed on that website, but I do know most of them and they're beautiful. What's the "best hike" is pretty personal so I don't think there's a list that fits everyones preferences. For example, some trails require bits of rock climbing or are pretty exposed so you have to pay attention all the time. That's not my preference, but the scenery is great and others may not mind. Some people like 1 hour hikes, others want 6 hours minimum. Etc.

You can find many trail suggestions here, and we'll soon ad more. Some of my favorites are Engstligenalp - Unter dem Birg, Grütschalp - Mürren, Hohtenn- Lalden, Piz Nair - Bever, Rotenboden - Riffelalp, Sillerenbühl - Bütschi - Bergläger and Murtel - Pontresina. There so much, you can't go wrong. You just need good weather.
