After an amazing week of easy walking in Bernese Oberland area last September, I am planning a trip this June end for 5 days with base as Brig. The weather was amazing when i last visited and wanted to choose September for my 2019 trip but could not find decent flight fares.

I have planned my days as below (Subject to weather):

Day 1: Kandersteg - Lake Oeschinensee and some easy walks in the area

Day 2: Zermatt - Matterhorn and walk around

Day 3: Fiesch, Aletsch and walk around Ernen village

Day 4: Schynige Platte to see the wildflowers in bloom

Day 5: Loetschental walking

Will easy walking trails in these areas be open? Please share trails with good views. Is Brig a good base to cover these places? In case of bad weather, what alternate plans would you suggest?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Wanderdiva,

June can be absolutely wonderful as well. Your plan seems fine to me. Day 4 will be a longer trip but other than that no issues.

Things to do and hiking suggestions can be found here: www.myswissalps.com/va lais/activities. Normally all trails should be accessible by late June. But it's nature so no guarantees. I can guarantee that there will be plenty to do and see! Good weather does help a lot. Bad weather activities are limited. There is a thermal bath nearby, and trips to Sion, Montreux and even Bern and Geneva are doable.

Hotel suggestions and more information about Brig is here: www.myswissalps.com/br ig
