On the second day at the site we were joined by a troop from Italy for a walk up into the mountains for a swim in a alpine lake. This was the first real chance for a lot of the group to see and feel the amazing views and steep slopes around Kandersteg.
Back to Kandersteg
Half way through the walk we stopped off at Oeschinensee alpine lake for a quick dip, in fact for a few of us it turned out to be a very quick dip due to the water being really cold
In Oeschinensee it was very cold but a lot of fun. We had to swim from one side to the other at least once, but me and Mat Baxter did it twice. - Iain Davies
In Oeschinensee it was good, the walk was nice and easy. When we got into the lake, I jumped in and it felt really cold. Then it warmed up - Mat Baxter
After the swim and a well deserved hot drink at the cafe by the lake, we set off walking again, heading for a bit of fun, a toboggan run on the slopes above Kandersteg.
