Winter hiking

Hiking in winter has a particular appeal. On more than 100 kilometres of perfectly prepared winter hiking trails, all you can hear is the scrunch of your shoes. It's a lot more peaceful to stomp along the soft whiteness wearing snowshoes. Off the beaten track of the hustle and bustle of the pistes, snow hikers between Mürren, Männlichen and Grindelwald are immersed in enchanting winter landscapes surrounded by solemn silence.

    Sunny Winter Tour First-Waldspitz-Bort

    Faulhorn winter hiking

    The winter hike from First is very rewarding: firstly because of the panorama, and secondly because the longest toboggan run in the world begins on the Faulhorn. Once you've pulled your sled up the mountain you can take it easy on the way back via the Bussalp to Grindelwald: There is nothing else to do except steer and brake for 15 kilometres.
