We will be spending a week in Brig and a week in Lauterbrunnen hiking the beautiful mountain trails. Can we rent trekking poles in these areas (rather than purchase and ship from the U.S.)?

Danke!

Hello jooch,

To tell you the truth: I have been spending quite some time searching and googling, and I'm so sorry I can't give you specific information.

It will probably be best for you to send an e-mail to the Brig Tourist Office and the LauterbrunnenTourist Office. You will find the e-mail possibilities on the websites.
I'm quite sure they will be able to help you.

This was the best I could do… I'm pretty sure that renting is possible. I really hope it will work out for you. I hope you will let me/us know if you have been able to gather the right info.

Lots of success and have fun in Switzerland!

Hi jooch,

The tourist offices can certainly help you out. Also, you can search for addresses of Intersport rental shops. They have shops in both Brig and Lauterbrunnen, but I'm not sure what equipment they have available.
