Tour description

Snowshoe tour at the foot of the Furka pass, where Furkareuss and Wittenwasserenreuss flow together.

The path towards the Wittenwasseren valley starts at the hotel Des Alpes, south of the road to the Furka pass. At the beginning, you can walk without the snowshoes on the way as far as the club house of the golf club Realp. Already after about 200 m, the trail turns to the right and rises to the Biel. From the Biel, the trail leads through a depression and ascends again to the Furka pass road. Walking along the road, you reach after few minutes a hairpin road, where quite a long sequence to the James Bond film «Goldfinger» was shot in 1964. Continuing your way from the «Goldfinger» bend onwards, you arrive at the turning point of the trail, not far from Hostetten. You cross the mountain side parallel to the Furka pass road towards Realp. After a short ascent, you stand in the middle of the golf course and pass by «ob den Bielen» towards Feld. From Feld along the Feld brook downhill, you get back to the Furka pass road and to the point of departure in Realp.
