Jungfrau summer sports weekend
Join us for a weekend at the charming and authentic Mountain Hostel in Gimmelwald, in the gorgeous Lauterbrunnen valley. A tremendous place with the most beautiful views of the Bernese Oberland 4000ers.
The hostel is located within the Jungfrau alpine resort. Two valleys, three mountain ranges and countless trails to explore by foot or on a mountain bike. The summer paradise with the backdrop of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau offers outdoor enthusiasts everything their hearts desire: hiking and mountain bike trails, via ferrata, rivers to swim or practice white water sports, perfect spots for paragliding…
We will be all together for breakfasts, dinners and drinks, and during the day you’re free to do whatever you feel like doing: hiking, via ferrata, mountain biking, chilling at the pool or spa in Mürren… There is something for every taste!
What’s the plan?
Meet at the hostel on Friday night and enjoy a homemade oven-baked pizza while listening to the live concert with the most stunning background.
On Saturday and Sunday after breakfast, feel free to do whatever you feel like doing! Celine will be probably hiking or heading to Mürren for the via ferrata and we will bring some additional via ferrata sets, helmets and harnesses for you to use, Alex will probably be mountain biking (mountain bikes can be rented out in Mürren). And you can also book a paragliding tandem flight or a day canyoning or rafting in Interlaken… Everything is possible!
On Saturday evening we will prepare a nice dinner for everyone at the hostel and enjoy another night with some drinks on the terrace.
It is the participant’s responsibility to get health and accident insurances that cover mountain rescue, including extreme sports. Becoming a Rega patron is highly recommended (CHF 40 per year only for emergency medical assistance from the air).
