Thanks for a wonderful, super helpful website and the Forum, which is just so filled with info from travellers sharing their experiences. I have used the resources, including the spreadsheet to determine which pass to use (By the way, you are right. No matter how I slice and dice my ever-changing itinerary, the HFC always comes on top as cheapest).
Below is my 17 days itinerary for my first trip to Switzerland. I have marked the dates that are firm with *
I would like some suggestion on the 2 days I have between Zermatt and Bern. Any suggestions (light hiking or sightseeing)
*Sep 7-16 (9 days) Berner Oberland area hiking with Wengen as base (Lauterbrunnen/Stechelberg, Grutschalp/ Murren/Gimmelwald, Mannlichen/Kleine Scheidegg, Schynige Platte, Grindelwald/First)
Sep 17-19 (3 days) Zermatt hiking (Gornergrat/Riffelseeweg, Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, Blauherd/Fluhalp)
Side trip to Fiesch/Eggishorn on the way from Wengen to Zermatt (plan to leave luggage at Brig train station then pick it up on the way to Zermatt). I know I will be doubling back to Brig - I can't see how I can avoid it.
Sep 20-21 (2 days) ???
Sep 21-22 (2 days) Bern, including a day trip to Murten)
*Sep 23 (1 day) Zurich - fly home the next day
