The countless trails that wind their way around Grindelwald are ideal terrain for both novice and experienced trail runners. There’s something for everyone, whether easy flow trails, technically challenging descents and thrilling verticals, all in a breathtaking setting. Trails for training can be found between 1,000 and around 3,000 metres. Eiger Ultra Trail is part of the Ultra Trail World Tour event that is held annually in Grindelwald.
The diversity of the Jungfrau Region is a huge draw for trail running enthusiasts, with everything from easy trails through forests and meadows to technically challenging trails in alpine terrain. Some trail running routes are also popular with hikers. During the peak season (July/August) and on weekends, the trails can be quite crowded. The routes at higher elevations can also be covered with snow during the summer months. Please inform yourself about current conditions and be aware of the local weather forecast.
