Making a horsehoe loop among some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in all the Swiss Alps, the brand new "Tour of the Jungfrau Region" is destined to become one of the classic walks of Europe. In a journey of 9-10 days the walker visits pastures, ridges, summits and passes, skirts exquisite mountain lakes, and gazes on waterfalls, gorges and glaciers - all in the shadow of such iconic peaks as Wetterhorn, Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. Accommodation is both plentiful and atmospheric, and the route has lots of bad-weather alternatives. Despite the nearby presence of popular resorts like Grindelwald, Wengen, Lauterbrunnen and Murren, "The Tour of the Jungfrau Region" explores some suprisingly remote landscapes, including part of a World Natural Heritage site.
'An interesting long circular walk for those who have done the Tour of Mont Blanc and want to find a route that is less crowded. There are bad-weather alternatives, and shortside walks. As always with Kev Reynolds, the introduction is comprehensive. This route (or part of it) could, I think, be used for an Alpine debut.' Irish Mountain Log Magazine, Summer 2006
