Snowshoe Tour: Lobhornhütte

This is a varied, medium-difficulty snowshoe tour high above the Lauterbrunnen valley, with the peaks of the Jungfrau massif behind you and the distinctive Lobhörner in front.

You'll begin by following the Sulwald Trail in the direction of Mederalp before crossing over to the Lobhorn Trail and climbing steadily uphill.  The marked path winds its way through snow-covered mountain forests and open plains until you reach the Lobhornhütte. When you arrive at the hut you have the opportunity to savour incredible views and recharge with a hearty meal and drinks before beginning your descent.
