Tour description

Grindelwald Bus takes you from Grindelwald to the Grosse Scheidegg, the watershed between the Grindelwald and Hasli valleys. From here an easy walk along the slightly undulating footpath takes you to First. Along the entire path you can admire the splendid panorama of the ice-capped Bernese Alps as well as a varied Alpine flora. The 6-seater gondola with its large panoramic windows takes you safely back down to Grindelwald.
