On the Elsighorn to climb steadily but not too steep from the Elsigalp in about 2-3 hours, depending on your condition. This path is also good with older children. Once at the top, you have a great view in all directions, towards Adelboden, Frutigen and in the distance the Lake of Thun. The snow-capped mountains in the direction of Valais can also be seen.
The Elsigalp as a starting point can be reached by cable car. 18 CHF round trip. The descent from the Alp is also very nice and can be mastered in only about 45 minutes.
On the alp there are two lakes where you can swim and where you can make it very comfortable. There are benches, sun beds and fireplaces for barbecues. We were there in mid-September and almost alone. In winter it is highly frequented ski area, so very busy.
