Hi.

If a long flight, 4 days is kind of short.

If flying from a nearby country maybe not so bad.

How do you expect your day 1 would work? I doubt!
""Hike to Lake Bachalpsee" really? out of Grindelwald it's 4 hours oneway.
How do you think to go to Kleine Scheidegg? And how to go further on to Jungfraujoch?
