Snowshoe Tour: Wetterhorn Grindelwald

The Wetterhorn Snowshoe Tour is an easy-moderate trail with impressive views.  Beginning on the outskirts of the picturesque mountain village Grindelwald, the marked route gently climbs through the foothills of the towering Wetterhorn towards Grosse Scheidegg.  Views of the Upper Grindelwald Glacier, First ski resort, and Schwarzhorn greet you as you hike through alpine meadows and snow-covered forests.

Visit the Alpine Bird Park while the world-famous Eiger north face and the Wetterhorn loom overhead.  This round trip loops back down to the Wetterhorn carpark, completing an unforgettable winter experience.
