Experience unspoilt nature by snowshoeing in the Holiday Region Interlaken

Trudge through a snow-laden mountain idyll on snowshoes

Snowshoes transform a routine winter walk into a memorable experience of nature. Equipped with "big shoes", make your way through an unspoilt landscape of deep snow and expansive snow fields. The sight of icy fir trees sparkling in the sunlight is simply captivating.

Take untouched pathways and walk through dense forests and over snow-covered meadows where silence and tranquillity reign. Listen to the crunch of your footsteps in the snow, watch the snowflakes whirl in the air and savour the magical stillness.

Snowshoe trekking in the moonlight

A guided snowshoe tour by night is an extra-special experience. The mood beneath a star-filled sky is a thing of beauty. Under professional guidance and equipped with a headlamp, trudge your way through a magical winter landscape. You can also experience a moonlight snowshoe trek, perhaps in the light of the full moon: on selected dates, pull on your «big shoes» and immerse yourself in the nocturnal mood of the Niederhorn, Aeschi or Lombachalp. Beneath your feet, the moonlight shining on the snow creates a sea of lights; above your head the stars sparkle. Along the way, warm up with a good cup of tea or some mulled wine as you enjoy the tranquillity of nature. The tour concludes with a fine cheese fondue in a cosy mountain cabin. Encounter the peaceful nocturnal scene with a range of choices.
