Kandersteg is in the heart of the Bernese Oberland, where the great arc of the Alps culminates in some of its highest and most spectacular peaks. This is 'chocolate-box' Alps: lush green meadows bright with wildflowers against a backdrop of rugged, wild and beautiful mountains, topped by glistening glaciers.

A weeks' stay here will allow you to discover the very best of the region: a huge turquoise lake enclosed by towering cliffs, a 'hidden' valley headed by a glacier you can touch, a sheer gorge carved out by glacial meltwaters, an Alpine pass that has been used since Celtic times and more wild flowers than you even knew existed. Did we mention the views? The 3970 metre Eiger, Monch, Jungfrau and Matterhorn all display their white peaks proudly, and a plethora of other summits and glaciers is closer to hand. Amazingly, all of this is accessible on well-defined paths directly from the hotel (with excellent signposting) or after a short bus or gondola ride.

On arrival at the *** Hotel Alfa Soleil, your hosts, the charming Seiler family, will provide you with a Regional Travel Pass giving you unlimited use of cable cars and the regional bus service. They'll also ensure you receive a full introduction to the area, including insider tips on where to spot the best alpine flowers!

When you feel like a break from walking, there's an elegant lounge, traditional restaurant, swimming pool, sauna, solarium and gym.  In the evening you can relax and enjoy regional dishes and fine wines in Nico's restaurant.
