Adelboden ? Switzerland


Adelboden is a classic Swiss resort situated in the Frutigen-Niedersimmental administrative district, 1350 metres above sea level in the Bernese Oberland, Switzerland. Enclosed by dazzling alpine sceneries and the panoramic view of the Lohner and Wildstruber mountain peaks, the resort is basically home to an assortment of ski accommodations, dining places, shops, and  snow packed slopes for a great powder day adventure. The place even accommodates  the world cup races at Choenisbergli every January, boasting of its 185-kilometre pistes. The versatile Adelboden also welcomes not just skiers but also snow walkers especially during wintertime when tourists traverse the 50-kilometre road of pure snowy delight.

Adeloboden possesses only a single onward road linking from Frutigen which connects through Spiez to N6 and Bern. The good news is, there is basically no transit traffic going there. You can secure a visitor ticket or Swiss Transfer Ticket which encompasses rail and post bus transfer onwards Adelboden. Rail journey along the Swiss Alps is also worth the try. From Frutigen, you can  take a train ride in  Lötschberg, going to Bern and Brig, and from then on, you can reach the resort by availing of the bus services that will get you to the slopes.  Car rentals are usually road safe, since vehicles are fully equipped with appropriate winter chains and snow tires. An old mountain pass route from Engstligenalp and Chindbettipass going to the Gemmi Pass and into the Valais is still being utilised by plenty of hikers if you want to experience a little walkathon adventure, but be sure that you are with someone knowledgeable of that place to avoid complications.

Most tourists would rather choose hiring cars in going to Adelboden since it is more convenient and very flexible and what’s more, there is virtually no traffic in the road most especially in winter. If you live somewhere in the South of England, you will enjoy driving your way to and from the resort. You can always have opportunities to stopover for buying a thing or two especially on your return trip. Travelling as a family or in groups is always a much better choice because you can avail cheaper flight packages especially in the peak season. Coming from Calais going through Belgium and Germany is a most preferable trip which would take about nine hours. Following this route will let you avoid expensive tolls in the French roads, and in addition, car gas is very affordable in Switzerland and Luxembourg by British standards.
