K11 : Our Expedition to Kandersteg, Switzerland


Go Back to the K11 Homepage

Our final full day in Switzerland and a relaxing one. We walked to the station and caught the train top Brig. The train took us through the Lötschberg Tunnel - 9.1 miles through the mountain. We'd previosuly cycled by and hiked over the tunnel as passed through the mountain! The tunnel took 5 years to build and opened in 1911.
From Brig we caught the bus to Brigabd - a swimming pool complex on the outskirts of the town. The pools are thermally heated and includes a slide and rapids pool. We had a great day in the sunshine playing in the pool. The weather was also great with a few of us getting a bit of a tan.
