spring flower Weekend

April 15-16th, 2023 Canton Bern/Gstaad Valley

"Wild flowers aren't meant to be cut & tamed. They are meant to be loved and admired"                                                                                                        

A.T. Hincks


Hiking in Gstaad Valley means immersing yourself into wild landscapes, getting to know local life, flora and fauna.

Stroll through tall trees that are reaching the, watch wild flowers, awe as you look at the mountain summits.

Submerge into the Swiss back country life, wilderness, allow yourself to get away from the hustle & bustle - join us to experience awe and adventure during this weekend in the mountain hut. Boost your immune system with the intake of wild spring flowers.

We will walk for 4-5 hours every day summiting local peaks, depending on the conditions.

Each day we will make 5-8km with 400-600m+ of elevation gain. This experience is suitable for medium level hikers or beginners with good fitness condition. But as always in those trips- mindset and motivation are the most important elements.

Our home during weekend is Grubenberghutte, located at 1800m, a place where local go, with stunning views. If lucky we shall also witness beautiful sunset and milky way.

Day 1: 750m+, 190m-, 9km

Day 2: 360m+, 900m-, 10km

About the Outing Leader

Ruta did her first hike back in 2013- she then realized that the real life is not happening in the indoor- office environment but rather outside.

This made her realize that she was missing something important in her life- connection with Nature. Since then, most of her time she spends outside- climbing, hiking, wild camping, walking in the forests, parks and other natural places. She has become hiking ‚guru‘ and is now passionate to share the most beautiful places in the Swiss Alps with the others. Retreat participants often say that Ruta's passion for Nature is contagious.

Ruta is a professional mountain leader ( Association of Mountain Guides in Switzerland), neuro-coach (Neuroleadership Institute, London), and forest therapy guide (Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, USA). 

By creating Be Outside Coaching movement, she has connected her 2 major passions: activities outside and human development. Be Outside Coaching delivers immersive and holistic Nature experiences in the different corners of pristine the Swiss Alps.

Be Outside. Be Authentic. Be You
