After five stages along the Via Alpina last year from Engelberg / OW to Griesalp / BE, this year it was again in five stages in the opposite direction from L'Etivaz / VD to Griesalp in the Kiental. The stage over Hohtürli / Blüemlisalp is considered the queen stage and we were able to enjoy it in sensational conditions. From Kandersteg we used the gondola to the Oeschinensee to save a few of the many meters in altitude to the 2785m high Hohtürli, but also to safely reach the last postbus at the end of the tour from Griesalp down to Reichenbach. Five unforgettable days in the Bernese Alps.
