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.
