I will be doing a month-long Europe trip this summer and packing light. My last week will be in Switzerland and I plan to do some hiking in the Berner Oberland. I'm 50 years old, and this will be light hiking, maybe 5 miles per day at most. Do I need hiking boots for this, or will I be OK with tennis shoes (with gripper bottoms)? Of course, I don't want to waste valuable packing space with something I don't need. Thank you!
Are tennies OK for summer hiking in Switzerland?
