Panorama Trail (No. 142)

Snowshoe tour from Rotenboden to Riffelberg

Route No. 142 | level: middle | duration: 1h 30 mins | distance: 2.5 km

A unique mountain panorama will be revealed as you trek the Panorama Snowshoe Trail from Rotenboden to Riffelberg. In around two hours you follow the marked trail - down 233 altitude metres towards the valley and can enjoy 2.5 km of the different facets in a winter landscape. The snowshoe route is marked every 100 metres with pink poles and is easy to complete without a mountain guide.

You will pass the frozen and snow-covered Riffelsee probably unnoticed. The route is far from the ski slopes - so you are guaranteed to find untouched powder snow!
