Transfer by rail to Kandersteg, from where the hotel will arrange a taxi pick-up to the hotel (5 mins) in time for dinner.
Day 2 - 7
We have included group lessons on three of the mornings (2 hours each) with the village ski school, during which you'll start to explore some of the easy trails that lead in and out of the pine and beech forests that surround the village. The crisp, fresh mountain air and beautiful scenery are overwhelming. After your lessons and on the remaining days you can explore the immaculately maintained trails further independently. We have also included two cable car passes giving you the opportunity to go up to the spectacular Sunnbuel Plateau (1900m) where you will find easy skiing on a magnificent flat, open sunny plateau offering spectacular vistas of the highest peaks in the Kandersteg region; the Balmhorn (3777m) and the Altels (3629m).
If you're feeling adventurous you can ski to the famous high Gemmi Pass (2314m) for an extraordinary panorama from where the Matterhorn, Wildstrubel, Dents du Midi and even Mont Blanc are clearly visible. Alternatively you may like to take the cable car over to the isolated spa town of Leukerbad before heading back to Kandersteg for a traditional folklore evening.
Transfer by rail to Zurich Airport for your flight back to London.
