Day 1: Climb via Sulwald to the Lobhorn Hut at 1955m

You will take a public bus to the remote village of Isenfluh, located high above the Lauterbrunnen valley. You will meet your instructor and then take a small mountain cable car from Isenfluh to the hamlet of Sulwald. In Sulwald you will strap on your snowshoes and begin your hike. This leisurely ascent will take you through snow-covered forests towards the Lobhorn Hut. In the afternoon you’ll have the opportunity to climb the Schärihubel and enjoy incredible views before settling in the hut for the evening.

Day 2: The Lobhörner

You will be able to see the Lobhörner from quite a distance, and once you reach the base of the towers you will be rewarded with even more spectacular views. From this vantage point, the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau are proudly on display. If conditions allow, you will be able to hike around the towers and absorb views from various angles. After climbing the small Lobhorn to 2519m, you will descend back to Isenfluh.
