Hike: Lake Thun Trail
Thun – Sigriswil – Interlaken – Spiez – Thun
The pyramid-shaped peak of the Niesen watches over the southern shore of Lake Thun and accompanies you on this scenic hiking tour. The first stage ends with a walk across the Gummischlucht gorge, after which you continue on to lively Interlaken. Spectacular suspension bridges, the Beatus Caves and the Weissenau Nature Reserve make the following days an extremely entertaining and idyllic pleasure. In the picturesque bay of Spiez you will make a short stopover before your hike ends at the foot of the Niesen.
Tour character: Well accessible paths lead around Lake Thun. Good basic fitness is required for the sometimes long stages. A special highlight is the crossing of the various suspension bridges on the northern shore of the lake.
