Visit to Oeschinensee

5th July 2012

We woke to sunshine again today and so, after a quick breakfast, the Scouts left to hike up to Oeschinensee, a mountain lake about 500 metres above Kandersteg. This took about one and a half hours and some of us found the climb easier than others! When we got to the top, we enjoyed a paddle in the icy cold lake and then had lunch. The Scouts then continued their hike, to the nearby toboggan run, which was great fun. Unfortunately, the weather was unkind to us once again and, after only four or five runs on the toboggan track, the rain came on and it was closed down. Instead, we got on a cable car, to take us back to Kandersteg, within minutes.

Once we were back in the village, the Scouts had some free time to do some shopping and take in the sights. It was then time to head back to camp for dinner, which consisted of soup followed by a barbecue. The evening was rounded off toasting marshmallows around the fire.

Authors Matthew Kirwan and Thomas McCarthy.
