WHAT IS THE PROGRAM?

September 18-19, 2024. BELGRADE – NOVI SAD – LAUTERBRUNNEN VALLEY (Staubbach and Trummelbach Waterfalls) – GRINDELWALD

ROUTE LENGTH: 14km
ELEVATION DIFFERENCE: 200m
DIFFICULTY: EASY

Departure from BELGRADE and NOVI SAD around 12 PM (noon or thereabouts) and a leisurely drive to Switzerland.

In the early morning hours, we arrive at the incredible LAUTERBRUNNEN valley known for its dramatic cliffs cascading water from the heart of the Alps, forming 72 waterfalls. Those videos you’ve seen online where waterfalls plunge above villages? That’s here!

We will have a very easy hike through the valley where we’ll get close to the STAUBBACH falls, which drop from a dizzying height of 300m, and TRUMMELBACH, known for the option to go behind the waterfall. Those who wish can pay extra on-site and experience something truly unique!

After the hike, we expect a short drive to nearby GRINDELWALD, check into rooms, and relax for the rest of the day in a beautiful setting surrounded by mountain giants.

September 20, 2024. GRINDELWALD – KANDERSTEG – LAKE OESCHINEN (Optional)

ROUTE LENGTH: 14km
ELEVATION DIFFERENCE: 900m
DIFFICULTY: DEMANDING

In the early morning hours, we'll have a short drive to KANDERSTEG and start the hike to one of the most beautiful lakes Switzerland has to offer. Given that there are over 1500 lakes, competition is tough.

However, this is what you’ve likely seen on social media. Characterized by its nearly vertical cliffs as if someone dug a hole at a perfect right angle in the mountain just to place a lake there! And the color of the water? A turquoise that is found in very few places on the planet. We will hike to the lake's shore and then around to a couple of viewpoints to fully appreciate this natural wonder!

September 21, 2024. GRINDELWALD – STOOS RIDGE (Optional)

ROUTE LENGTH: 14km
ELEVATION DIFFERENCE: 1000m
DIFFICULTY: DEMANDING

In the early morning hours, we have a short drive passing by lakes Brienz and Lucerne. Then we arrive at Switzerland's steepest funicular, which takes us to the small village of STOOS surrounded on one side by perfect green meadows and on the other by dramatic mountain ridges.

We will undertake what is officially Switzerland’s most beautiful ridge hike! The trail is perfectly maintained and secured, with views that inspire the imagination... On one side is Lake Lucerne, and on the other, the eternal snows of the Alps bring fresh air perfumed with the most beautiful wildflowers. It's hard to imagine a more picturesque hike!

After returning, if there is time, we’ll also visit the city of LUCERNE to take a few steps on the world's oldest wooden bridge and reflect in the lake that has been beneath our feet all day!

September 22-23, 2024. GRINDELWALD – TICINO (Verzasca Valley) – NOVI SAD – BELGRADE

In the morning, we pack our stuff in the bus and slowly start the return journey. Passing various lakes and mountains, trying to remember as many details as possible to keep them in our memory forever.

After a few hours, we turn off the main road to at least glimpse the famous VERZASCA valley in the TICINO region, known for its small mountain villages with idyllic traditional stone houses.

We'll take a short photo break to behold the turquoise waters of Verzasca and take a brief walk through one of the surrounding villages, stepping back a few hundred years.

The journey continues towards Serbia, where

we plan to arrive the next day in the early morning hours.
