Winter Weekend (no skiing) 

Winter Weekend fully packed with memories and exploring new places - all inclusive! 

Day One
On the first day we will take the train to Leukerbad (canton of Valais) and take a gondola up to Gemmipass.
There, we will hike for about 3 to 4 hours. The hike is not difficult, but you should be in good condition to hike for 4 hours. We will have dinner and stay overnight in a youth hostel in Kandersteg.

Day Two
The next morning, we will visit the famous Oeschinensee to enjoy the mountains around the lake. If it is frozen and cold enough, we might even walk onto the ice. At lunchtime we are heading over to a different valley to enjoy some sledding for the afternoon.
