Hi we are a young 60yr old couple and come from sunny south africa and will be doing 4 days in Zermatt and Wengen in June. We are not experienced hikers but we want to do the alpine walking trails that would be appropriate and safely -a few hours at a time and seeing the best we can of the scenery.
Will the trail info that suits our experience be available easily at the locations?
We have low ankle bush walking shoes (Merrel and Addidas) not closed ankle boots. Will these be OK for our purposes or should we get more substantial footwear?
We will have a small backpack for essentials and clothing layers and some water and snack food - is this sufficient?
Thanks Mike and Cathy
