I plan to stay in either Grindalwald or Launterbrunen for 3 days in August. Love natural scenery and want to try some hiking . A few questions to ask, and appreciate your help :-
1/ Do I need a guided tour ? (no experience in hiking) seems like tours offered are mostly from Luzern.
2/ I am a solo traveler, is it safe to hike alone in this region ?
3/ Any easy trails for novice you can suggest ? I can walk for approx. 1.5 hour to start with.
4/. Should I stay in Grindalwald or Launterbrunnen ?
5/.Any tips to prepare for unexpected weather during hiking ?
6/. Any resting points along the trail e.g. reasonably priced restaurant offering good views, hopefully there is still table available ? or public transport along the trail in case I want to change my plan ?
7/. Also want to try First flyer. How to plan a hike with this ? Do I need to queue for 2 hours as mentioned in some of other posts ?
Have done some searching on the internet, but still can't get a clue to decide on my itinerary. Thanks in advance for your help. :)
