The Lauterbrunnen Valley is apparently the longest Valley in Europe. It is filled with waterfalls due to the run-off from the massive glaciers that surround the area. There are unlimited hiking options of varying distances, elevation gains, and difficulty. Drive to the end of the Valley to the town of Stechelberg and follow the well-marked route of "Obersteinbach." You will gain around 3,000 feet in elevation over the next few hours, putting you at eye level with the glaciers. It is impossible to describe the views but suffice it to say you will earn a rich reward for your efforts.
