Summary

Lying in the Bernese Oberland region at the heart of Switzerland, Wengen, at a height of some 1,274 metres, is ringed by some of Europe’s highest and best known mountains including the Eiger and Jungfrau. With breaktaking scenery, rich green alpine meadows and spruce forests below, it is a superb destination for a range of native flora as well as bird and butterfly spotting opportunities.

Once the snow retreats there is a wealth and profusion of flowers on both the high tops and in the lush pastures of the valleys. The list of flowers is endless and included on our target list will be: Campanula cenisia, Campanula thyrsoides, Gentiana acaulis, Gentiana verna, Gentiana lutea, Globularias, Lilium martagon, Lloydia serotina, Paradisea liliastrum, Veratrum album, Primula farinosa, Androsace alpina, Aquilegias, Anemones, Pulsatillas and many more. Indeed there can be between 250 and 350 species of plants in the Bernese Oberland area, depending on season.

In Wengen, timber-framed buildings and Belle Epoque hotels transport the visitor back to another century, an experience enhanced by the town’s car free policy. In the summer months, it is a popular choice for walkers and climbers attempting some of the higher peaks, but with 500km of walking trails and 15 mountain railways, accessing the alpine meadows is easy.

Each day we will walk a different route of up to five miles, sometimes taking a mountain railway to the starting point. We will also take the rack railway to Schynige Platte where we will visit the Alpine Botanic Garden which has 600 different species of local plants.

NB: there is no single room supplement for the first 12 rooms. Thereafter a supplement will apply

Tour highlights:

  • Gentle hikes through some of Europe's most breathtaking scenery, taking a different route each day
  • A seemingly endless array of species, both in the wild and at the incomparable Alpine Botanic Garden
  • The nostalgic beauty of Wengen itself, with its timber-framed buildings and pedestrianised streets
