The options are just about limitless! If you're both fit, you might consider walking from Lauterbrunnen to Kandersteg. You can cheat on the first leg to Mürren and take a cable car. Leaving Mürren you cross the Sefinnenfürke pass (a bit of a slog because there's a long scree slope to climb).
You used to be able to stay in a farm house halfway down called Oberdürrenberg. In summer they put mattresses in the empty hayloft above the barn. It's been a few years since I was last that way, so I don't know if they still do it.
After Oberdürrenberg, the trail goes down to the rustic Berggasthaus Golderli www.golderli.ch/home.h tml (very basic - no electricity in the rooms, but amazing character) then up the other side of the valley towards the Blüemlisalphütte. This section is very long and quite steep in places, but not technical. The hut is a proper SAC hut, so hut rules apply. www.bluemlisalphuette. com/typo3/index.php?id=9
After that it's literally downhill all the way, through Ober and Unter Bergli to Oeschinensee (a picturesque lake), then on to Kandersteg. This walk can be done in 3 or 4 days, depending on the weather and how much ground you want to cover per day.
Another suggestion is to take a guided walk down the Aletschgletscher from the Jungfraujoch to Fiescheralp, staying overnight at the Koncordiahütte. I haven't done this one, but it's on my wish list. www.grindelwaldsports. ch/en/aletsch-glacier-hike.html
I hope this gives you a couple of ideas.
