If you like to explore an area on snowshoes, you will find a perfect terrain in the region of Biel-Ruogig-Fleschsee.

Unspoilt nature and deep powder snow far from ski runs and mass tourism. The moonlight hikes, combined with a mulled wine and a fondue (traditional Swiss cheese meal) in one of the mountain restaurants, are very popular.

Berggasthaus Biel, Tel.+ 41 (0)41 870 25 44

Winter hiking trail
For pedestrians, up to 5 km of winter hiking trails apart from the ski runs are prepared with the snow cat every day anew. Because of the fact that the skiing and einter hiking region Biel-Kinzig is called «the sunny side», the motto says: «Just enjoy the sun!»
