need help planning a hiking trip around North Eastern Switzerland

Jump to last reply

Hey, It's been a dream of mine since I was little to go to the land of mountains, cheese and chocolate. I'm visiting Switzerland for four weeks next year, and need some help planning a hiking holiday.

I've looked at maps, routes and information but I've never been on an overseas trip before, and am not very confident in putting an itinerary together! If someone who knows Switzerland well could help me I would really appreciate it! :)

So some facts about my trip:

Time: June 2014
Length: four weeks, give or take
Where: North, North Eastern area
Budget $4,000 (I don't plan on doing most touristy things, so hope it is enough)
Aim: primarily hike/walk around, stay in B&B's, hostels etc. (not camping)
Hiking difficulty: medium - don't want to slog the whole way, but am fit enough to put in a good effort.
Places I want to see: Basel, Bern, Zurich, the Rhinefall, Lichtenstein, everything in between! :) Any lakes, glaciers, castles in the area.
What I need help with: mapping an achievable hiking route between all these places, taking in the best sights.

Thanks for taking the time to consider my request. Can't wait to visit this beautiful country!
