Details

Trail running from inn to inn, with our bags transported for us is one of our favorite ways to see the Alps!

Run the Alps’ trail running tour of the Bernese Oberland will traverse some of the most famous mountain terrain anywhere in the Alps, if not the world. We’ll run about 8-10 miles each day, taking plenty of time on the uphills, pausing frequently to take photographs, enjoy the scenery, and sample great food and drink en route. We’ll trail run over historic Grosse Scheidegg pass, then cruise along high alp pastures with sweeping views of the Eiger. In the mountain villages of Wengen and Mürren, we’ll finish with several days of trail running past high alp farms (including stops for some great lunches!), within sight of the Jungfrau, one of the most photographed mountains anywhere.

Arrival

Plan to arrive the day your tour starts at the latest. Flights from the US usually depart the day before. The closest airport is Zurich, which is a little over three hours away by train. Geneva is four hours, forty-five minutes away. There are train stations in each airport, making for convenient transport to the region.

This tour includes a Swiss rail pass that you can use for travel to and from the airport.

Departure

Plan to depart the morning day after your tour ends, at the earliest. The closest airports from our finishing point are Geneva and Zurich. Plan on one night at a hotel in your departure city if you have a morning flight. We can assist with this booking, if you like.

If you’d like to extend your visit with additional trail running, we can help with self-guided run descriptions for other regions, and review trail racing possibilities, if you’d like to take part in an Alps trail race.
