Hi moderators and forum readers,
I am planning an early to mid June trip to Norway for about four days, but would like to spend the rest of my trip in Switzerland and hiking in the Swiss Alps if at all possible. I will be in Interlaken for a day to go skydiving, and then hope to leave from there for a backpacking trip. I have considered joining a guided backpacking tour but all of them seem to be full 9 to 12 day trips. I will only have five or six days to backpack.
I am open to self-guided tours, however, this will be my first time in Switzerland so I think I would prefer to join a group. I would like to do a hut-to-hut type of trip. Can anyone suggest any guided tours that would offer shorter trips? Or if anyone has any other suggestions for hiking/backpacking the Swiss Alps, I would really appreciate it! I don't really have a set area of the Swiss Alps that I am targeting to backpack, so I am flexible and open to any suggestions.
Thank you for your help!
