Hiking: Lake Thun Panorama Trail

Deep gorges and high peaks

The pyramid-shaped peak of the Niesen watches over the southern shore of Lake Thun and accompanies you on this scenic hiking tour. The first stage ends with a walk across the Gummischlucht gorge, after which you continue on to lively Interlaken.

Spectacular suspension bridges, the Beatus Caves and the Weissenau Nature Reserve make the following days an extremely entertaining and idyllic pleasure. In the picturesque bay of Spiez you will make a short stopover before your hike ends at the foot of the Niesen.
