Snowshoe Hiking

Recommend this page

The Destination Gstaad with its gently rolling landscape is ideal for snowshoe tours. Young and old alike will enjoy the easy or challenging routes through the unspoilt natural world.

Important Information

Even when it is used as an "arena for sport", the natural world is first and foremost a habitat for animals and plants and so should be respected. Snowshoe hiking requires good preparation (training and equipment) and should only be undertaken in good weather and good avalanche conditions. Snowshoeing routes are not prepared and will not be controlled. Use at your own risk.
