Exactly where on the North Side of Lake Thun are you staying? We used to stay in Hilterfingen but because of the lack of later buses from Interlaken, we changed to staying in Thun as there are plenty of trains along the South shore. On some occasions if we missed the last bus we used to take train to Thun then bus from there to Hilterfingen. Check the timetable for buses to your base from Thun as if you are not too far from there, you may be able to do what we did.
For example the summer timetable for the no.21 bus from Thun shows the following :- to Beachtenbucht (furthest it will take you) at 18.32, 19.02, 19.32, 20.30, 21.30, 22.30. as far as Merligen only above plus 20.00, as far as Gunten only plus 21.00 and 22.00 and as far as Oberhofen only plus 19.17, 19.47, 20.15, 20.45, 21.15, 21.45, 22.15 and 22.45.
If you are between Interlaken and Beatenbucht I am afraid you will just have to be sure to catch that last bus!
People have sometimes questioned my choice of Thun as a base but it has always served us well because of the excellent transport links from all over the place!
