Hello!

We will be staying in Lauterbrunnen the first two weeks of September. We would like to do a 3 day / 2 night hut to hit hike. We are in good shape and avid hikers but would like a medium level difficultly for hike, scenery is the most important and do not want to hike more than 6-8 miles a day.

Any route suggestions / hut locations?

Hi Jmskinner23 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Your best bet is to check out the Swiss Alpen Club for details on all Swiss mountain huts.

The website will show you where the huts are, what services are provided, how long and hard the hikes are etc.

Contact details are also listed for reservations and further questions.

Take a look at our hiking page for recommendations. If you like the hikes listed you can search the SAC website for huts in that area.

Also, take a look here and here for hiking maps.

Other members who have done hut to hut hikes may be able to chime in for more personal advice. :)

Regards,
Lucas

Thanks! I am having an issue figuring out what huts are where and which go together on the same route. Is there any resource that can specify, starting from Murren hike 8 miles to X hut, then the next day hike another 8 miles to X hut and then back to Murren the next day?

Hi JMSkinner23-

Please look at the first link that Lucas provide for hiking maps.

It has the answers to your question.

There are a lot of options, as shown there , for trails. Lucas has turned on the menu option for SAC huts. They stand out on the map as linked.

You are not required to march from one to the next one. You'll have to read the topography to decide how much up and down adds to the length of a hike., and which trails to take.

By the way, the distances are given in kilometers.
