Not long after I posted my info and travel checklist for Switzerland, I got a message over on Tumblr with some good info:
Hey there, just saw your post you wanna come to Switzerland? Here is a link to the Swiss online hiking maps(free)
I marked out a nice hut to sleep in near Grindelwald. I have to say normally February is still too snowy to plan for big hikes in the mountains. Depending on the area you should think of bringing skis! Grindelwald is a beautiful place but it’s not like you don’t meet any people there. If you want real outdoor with not seeing people Graubünden or Valais is the better choice to be in the mountains.
There is definitely no issue about driving on the wrong side of the road…it’s not England. 😉 You are right Switzerland is incredible with public transport you can get almost anywhere and you have the scenic advantage of being able to take in the sights! Also they always run on time. :p
I hope you will enjoy your trip to Switzerland when it happens, and let me know if you decide to visit Magic Woods 😉 [Note: this is a climbing spot]
Best time for hiking long hikes high up is in autumn. Then you have most options open. if you have any questions, just ask away.Somewheresomewhen (Tumblr blog)
Thank you!! Please keep inputs and interactions like this coming.
