My daughter and I are planning a trip to Switzerland the first two weeks of September in 2016. We want to go from hut to hut to hut. We have done a fair amount of hiking/backpacking in the western U.S. and have all the equipment but aren't looking for anything more challenging than a T2 level.

I would appreciate any and all suggestions! Thanks!

Thanks for your post smousefam5!

Most of the Jakobsweg (Route of St. James) is pretty easy, with great scenery, and you can even do it town to town, staying in hotels rather than huts:, outes/route-04.html.

Many huts can be found here: They used to have them on a map as well but I can no longer find it. Most are located at an altitude of 2000 - 3000 m along the more difficult routes, although it should be possible to find medium hikes with some huts along the way. This map is helpful: It shows all trails and lots of huts too. The Brunni hut and Barghuis Jochpass are in the beautiful Meiringen/Engelberg region and not difficult to reach.

This thread might be helpful too: topic/recommendation-for-multi-day-hike-in-bernese-oberl.
