Untouched landscapes, snow-covered forests and views of imposing mountain ranges – this is how you imagine a snowshoe tour. The circuit starts at the hotel of the same name. To the left of the small kiosk, the trail goes through snow-covered fields towards Weidli. After just a few minutes, a fantastic view opens up over the Grindelwald-First winter sports area, the Schynige Platte and the Grosse Scheidegg. The trail meanders over snow-covered fields to the Ischboden hut. If you’re lucky, the hut is open and you can have a short rest with coffee and cake. With a view of the Eiger, the trail returns to the starting point.
The tour is marked with official signposts and is suitable for beginners.

From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.
