Bern – Spiez

29. December 2018 | categories: Hiking

It’s Sunday, 24 June 2018. At 04:30 the alarm clock rings me out of bed to catch the first S-Bahn to Zurich at 05:37. At 7 a.m. I reach Berne and immediately make my way to the Aare behind the Bundeshaus.

When I reach the Aare, I follow it upstream.

After a good five hours I reach Thun and have lunch.

After lunch I walk along Lake Thun. About one hour before Spiez the path goes up a bit.

After a total of 44.5 kilometres I reach Spiez station, the soles of my feet are burning, but I am happy about the distance covered.

Tip: In summer the Aare can be easily navigated with a rubber dinghy. For example, it is a good idea to cover part of the Aare on foot and rent a ski boat in Thun to drift down the Aare.
