Tour description

The snowshoe hiking tour in Gitschenen with view of the mountain scenery leads across open terrain and through woodland. The snowshoe loop road is excellently marked with panels and black-yellow posts.

Hiking in the snowed-in mountain scenery is a special experience. With a bit of luck you can watch deer, chamois or mountain hares. In addition, you keep fit. Nocturnal people, as well, are being offered an unusual opportunity: The tour can also be done during a full moon night.

The trail leads from the cable railway to the mountain station of the ski lift, onwardto the Rüteli and the fore Schrindi. From here it is only a few metres to the vantage point. The path continues through the forest back to the ski lift. This tour is also suitable for beginners and takes about 1.5 hours on a length of 2.3 kilometres.
