Take an early train from Wengen to Lauterbrunnen then simply drive or take the short bus ride from Lauterbrunnen station to the picture book hamlet of Isenfluh. The journey in itself is all part of the Alpine fun… tunnelling through mountains and emerging unscathed to spectacular mountain scenery! The trail looks a little cliff-like, don’t be daunted – the path winds upwards through forest before opening out onto the alp of Sulwald.

The alp here is dotted with chalets and trees, irresistible in themselves especially when backdropped with the glamourous snow-clad, glaciated Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau Mountains. Lingering over breakfast at the Bergrestaurant Sulwald adds up to a great start to the day excursion from our ideal base in Wengen. Looking for Wengen accommodation? Search no further than…
