2017 Tour Dates and Prices

Admiring the view

Note: Costs shown are per person which includes all dinners, breakfasts, accommodation, and guides in our Guided Tours. Accommodation is in hotels, guesthouses, or mountain huts. Prices shown are in Swiss Francs with dollar and euro equivalents. However, exchange rates can change with the dollar and euro before tour dates. Therefore, prices in dollars and euros can vary depending on the rate at the time of booking.

Dinners: Guests will receive a 3 or 4 course set menu for dinner. (A choice of a 4 course menu for the High light Tour) Vegetarians can also be catered for with advanced notice. Please note: the dinner menu cannot be changed. Guests may have some choices depending on the size of the hotel, but, generally speaking, NO substitutions can be made. We suggest that guests with particular dietary needs book the trip without dinner. The cost would be USD 35, or $30 CHF, less per day.

Lunches: Lunches are not included in the tour price. Allow CHF 6 to CHF 10 per day for lunch ($7 to $12 US). Prices vary depending on where you buy your picnic lunch. We will advise you when you arrive in Switzerland.

Accommodation: We have different prices depending on whether you select dormitory accommodation or double rooms. A single person supplement is available for CHF 30 (approximately US $35) per day. Please note that not all locations offer the choice of dormitory or double accommodation. The mountain huts only provide dormitory-style accommodation, while the hotels only offer double rooms. For details, please see the Itinerary page. The specific tour itineraries provide details on the nature of each night's accommodation.

Jungfrau Mt Tour Length: Each tour is listed according to how many nights lodging are included. On the first day, your group meets at the first day's accomodation. On the last day, you will hike to your final night's accomodation. The next morning, following breakfast, you are ready to begin your journey home -- or to pursue your own travel plans. (Ibex Treks can assist you in arranging transportation to and from the tour accomodation.) So, a 5-night tour includes 5 nights accomodation, and 4 days of hiking.

Bernese Oberland Guided Scenic Tour

In the Guided Scenic Tour, the average walking time per day will be about 4 hours. Optional extras will make it possible to increase this walking time to an average of 6 hours per day. We explore part of the famous Alpine Pass Route, taking time to sample the beauty that smaller valleys offer, hiking on smaller paths, and having time to feel the mountain atmosphere. (See Guided Scenic Tour Itinerary.)

Bernese Oberland Guided Challenge Tour

This tour is designed specifically for experienced walkers. A good level of physical fitness would be necessary . The average walking time per day will be about seven hours. We hike into wilder terrain and to remote areas. (See Guided Challenge Tour Itinerary.)

Bernese Oberland Self Guided Mountain Bike and Hike Tour

This tour combines biking and hiking while covering a large area of the Bernese Oberland in a relatively short time. Sometimes the terrain is extremely steep, and can require an up-hill ride of 1-2 hours continuously. Guests will have to have had previous experience on mountain bikes, and be fit (see fitness requirements and Self Guided Mountain Bike and Hike Tour Itinerary).

Bernese Oberland Self Guided Ibex Challenge Tour

This tour hikes into wild scenery with the luxury of staying in 3-star hotels. It is physically challenging with optional rest days every other day if required. This tour can be extremely strenuous if all of the difficult options are taken. You will hike some of the most beautiful areas in Switzerland. (See Self Guided Ibex Challenge Tour Itinerary).

Bernese Oberland Self Guided Scenic Tour

This tour caters for our independent guests who, upon their arrival in Switzerland, can relax knowing that all of their hotels are booked, and that they have an itinerary that will cater to their own particular fitness level, with the excitement and anticipation of a visit to the beautiful Bernese Oberland. Hiking times vary between 3 hrs. and 8 hrs. depending options taken. (See Scenic Self Guided Tour Itinerary).

Bernese Oberland Self Guided Budget Tour

This tour caters to guests prefering less expensive accommodation staying mainly in dormitory style rooms. This tour is ideal for families wanting a maximum of 4 hours hiking on any particular day, with some sort of public transport avaiable on most days in case bad weather or tired feet might take priority! We have designed the tour to incorporate beautiful sights on the path which make perfect picnic or resting places. (See Budget Self Guided Tour Itinerary).

Zermatt Self Guided Tour

This tour caters for different levels of physical fitness and interests. Although most days have hard strenuous walking in the itinerary, easier options are available for those requiring a more relaxing day. No technical skills are necessary. The tour follows marked routes only.

The average walking time per day will be determined by the options taken. Maximum average 6 hours per day. Minimum average 4 hours per day. Accommodation in double rooms only. Picnic lunches carried. (See Zermatt Self Guided Tour Itinerary.)
