Join Marcy Walsh for a week of hiking and exploring the magnificent Engadine Valley in Switzerland.  Our group will be staying at our beloved Hotel Waldhaus (www.waldhaus-sils.ch),   a five-star hotel owned and managed by the same family for four generations and  featuring  rooms with charming old-world style and modern comforts, along with an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts and lovely public rooms with a resident chamber music trio.

Meals included at the hotel are an amazingly large buffet breakfast of every imaginable kind of treat, from muesli to croissants, from eggs to ham and cheese to fish, with delicious coffee or tea and in the evening, with your appetite enhanced by hiking, you will be served an exquisite European dinner.

Daily walks and hikes led by Marcy will be easy to moderate; using the excellent local bus and train service as needed (your pass is included). Stronger hikers looking for a faster pace can go with the local hotel guide any day(s). We lunch in mountain restaurants or picnic in scenic settings. There are optional excursions down the lower Engadine Valley to a contemporary bath and spa with 13 swimming pools, or up into the high peaks of the Bernina Range by train and cable car, or into Chiavenna in Italy.

Marcy's favorite destination has always been Switzerland, where she trained as a hiking guide during 25 years of hiking there with a professional mountain guide. An avid traveler, she has visited Antarctica, Norway and the Arctic Circle, Alaska, Baja California, cruised around Cape Horn and enjoyed bird-watching in Mexico, all with her husband Norman. Marcy is our most popular guide.

You can personalize your trip with additional travel before or after this week. Marcy is available, along with the services of Adventure Travel, to assist you with those travel arrangements.

Please note that you must depart the US on September 18 in order to arrive in Zurich on the 19th, and you cannot make a departure from Zurich airport before 2 pm on the 26th, so an overnight in Zurich may be required for your return flight on September 27.
