Saxeten Valley: Rengghorn 2103m
Saxeten is a small quiet mountain village near Interlaken. You will meet your guide at the Skipintli bus stop here, perform an equipment check, and then begin your snowshoe hike. You will follow the sled run at first, but then branch off west, gaining altitude step by step. At the alp Mittelberg, you will treat yourself to a small break and enjoy the tranquility of the unique surrounding landscape. You will continue your hike along the Morgenberghorn to the Rengglipass. Here the terrain will become steeper and the last few meters to the summit will provide the biggest physical and technical challenge of the day. Celebrate your success at the summit, marvel at the incredible views, and then begin your descent back to Saxeten using your ascent route. At the end of the tour, treat yourself to a good coffee at the Skipintli before heading home, satisfied and relaxed.
