we are two friends wishing to spend a hiking week in swiss alps, next week in fact 30august-5sept. i know it may be a bit late to start the planning so that's why i write to this forum, to shortcut some research steps and get a good start. we'd like to be all the week in the mountains, so not just 1-day trip where we sleep at night in cosy town hotels. sleeping in huts sounds good, we just need a bed and some food. we'd like to avoid most tourist areas, hike 6-10 hours a day, take average-difficult trails, high altittude .. for some mountain lovers, you know. not climbing but real mountain hiking. we have proper outift but we dont know anything about swiss alps, so dont know where to start from, what region etc.
grateful for some advice.
