With snowshoes you can leave the prepared routes and winter hiking paths and thus dive even deeper into the snow-covered landscape. Beginners or people unfamiliar with the area are recommended to start with a guided tour. There, the handling the snowshoes correctly is demonstrated and the proper behaviour towards animals and nature are taught. Information and addresses for guided snowshoe tours are available at the tourist centre.
There are also two marked snowshoe trails in Beatenberg:
Snowshoes can be rented at Intersport Grossniklaus.
From 23 December 2016 until 11 March 2017 a guide will accompany you every Friday- and Saturday-evening on an approximately 2-hour snowshoe tour. A short break with mulled wine is included. Afterwards, you are served a delicious dinner in the Bärgrestaurant Vorsass. Information is available at the Niederhornbahn, the Bärgrestaurant Vorsass and at the Beatenberg tourism office.
