I have a lifelong dream of a multi-day hike in the Swiss Alps. As part of a trip that was not mostly about mountain hiking, I had the opportunity to hike in the Austrian Alps Hohe Tauern. Those two days of hiking were perhaps the best days of my life. I understand that Switzerland is even more spectacular, so I am hoping to devote days, possibly more, to hiking in the Swiss Alps next summer, probably in September. I aim to overnight mainly in Alpine huts and don't want to carry camping gear.
