Snowshoe tour in the middle of the mountains
Let yourself be guided to an igloo on a comfortable snowshoe tour through beautiful mountain landscapes, and experience an unforgettable fondue fun in its unique atmosphere.
Your tour begins on Engstligenalp above Adelboden. Undisturbed by the noise of engines, ski lifts and pistes, you will hike past traditional alpine huts and through nature. From a vantage point you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountain world and the village of Adelboden - an ideal moment to take a break with mulled wine or punch.
Requirements and procedure
Engstligenalp usually offers optimal snow conditions until the beginning of May. Most of the tour leads through flat terrain and can easily be undertaken by less experienced snow hikers. You can shorten or extend the hike according to your preferences and also determine the pace as well as the time: the tour can be undertaken during the day as well as in the evening hours or at night, e.g. during a full moon.
Fondue fun in the spacious igloos
The destination of your snow hike is the seven large igloos, which are set up on Engstligenalp at the beginning of each winter. Björn Zryd, an internationally renowned artist, lovingly designs the igloos every year and guarantees a unique sense of security. Be enchanted by the special atmosphere and enjoy a fondue between snow and ice with your guests. Before the fondue fun, we recommend a small aperitif at the igloo bar.
The igloos are only a few minutes away from the train station, so the way home does not require much effort. Without a special permit, the last cable car leaves at 21:30. Afterwards, a bus will take you to your accommodation or car.
