Last year I attended a "Gourmet Hike". Yes..that is right...Gourmet as of very delicatessen-type of food after hiking into a paradise of a hut. This year, I have reserved space in the hut for 15 people to join.
The idea is to start the hike from Grindelwald up to the Glecksteinh?tte, which is one of the most beautiful huts I have seen so far. I will assure you that you will see glaciers, mountain goats (Steinb?cke) and a beautiful scenery down the valley, not to mention the powerful views on the Eiger and Jungfrau. You can see some of last year's pictures by clicking here
The hike itself is a bit strenuous as it goes up about 1000 meters, taking about 4-4.5 hours to hike up, but at least the path is very good.
The dinner is very special. The hut brings in a special cook from Germany who specializes in doing great food in "odd" places. Last year the dinner consisted of a seven entree course with the appropriate wine for it, whereby the cook explained in both German and English about his creation. The dinner is designed in such a way that mixes the delight of the food with the surroundings of the mountains.
The price of the Gourmet hike is CHF 135.- which includes the stay overnight at the hut plus the exclusive dinner and the "normal" breakfast in the morning. An additional CHF 10.- will place you in a "Comfort-Room", instead of the big sleeping room. There are 6 spaces for the Comfort-Room which I reserved. First comes, first serves.
One has to include the train ticket to Grindelwald as well if not arriving by car.
Now, here is the catch...I could not reserve anymore for the Saturday, just for the Friday. Hence, I need to survey how many of you are able and willing to come so that I can adjust the number of reservation. Please confirm your attendance before the 14th of June.
Hence, when signing up, please indicate if you want to be in a Comfort-Room or not.
I will update with more information at a later stage.
Best to all,
