K11 : Our Expedition to Kandersteg, Switzerland


Go Back to the K11 Homepage

Today was a more relaxing day visiting some of the sights of Switzerland by coach. We headed out of the Kandersteg valley via the narrow roads and out to the edge of lake Thunesee following the road towards Interlaken.
Our first stop was the amazing glacial Trummelbach waterfalls near Lauterbrunnen. These falls are fed by the melt from the largest mountains in Swizterland - the Eiger and the Jungfrau. The ten falls are carved within the mountain - 20,000 litres of water falls every second. We took the lift to the top of the falls before waling through each of the chambers. The roar of the water and the spray it generated was amazing.
Our second stop was at Interlaken located between the Thun and Brienz lakes. Itv was a chance to buy a few gifts from home, enjoy a coffee or an ice cream (and for some of us both!). After a relaxing afternoon we headed back to Kandersteg and the International Campfire.
After a dry day the weather look a turn for the worse as the time for the campfire arrived. Campfires at Kandersteg are a special shared experience with Scouts from across the globe gathering together to sing and be merry around the fire and this night was no exception.
