Kandersteg is one of the most famous ice-climbing areas in the world! The ice-falls in Kandersteg gladden the hearts of all ice-climbing fans. There is something for everyone, from beginners to professionals.
In the area of the Oeschi Forest there are some simple waterfalls which are excellent for courses as well as much more difficult classic routes. This area is well known and very popular so that on busy days one must choose ones route carefully in order not to endanger other climbers.
The Allmenalp Waterfall is a very exciting tour but the temperature and conditions must be right before setting off.
The Sunnbüel area also offers shorter, easy waterfalls - ideal for courses.
The longer tours in the Gastern Valley, at Giesenen and at the Oeschinen Lake should only be attempted by experts with a great deal of experience.
