Back to "Experiences"

  • Winter hiking and snowshoe tours

    Glistening snow, frozen streams and snowy landscapes. How does winter sound? It crackles under the snowshoes. There’s a gentle splash as a water bird glides on the unbroken lake surface. And if you listen closely, you’ll hear just how peaceful Lake Thun is this time of year.

  • Cross-country skiing

    Either classic or skating, the region gets cross-country skiers’ hearts beating faster. Varied, attractive and challenging trails run through a snowy winter paradise. And as you glide down the freshly groomed trails, take in the phenomenal views of the lake and mountains.

  • Ski touring

    Across Alpine meadows, through pine forests and past log cabins, each stride brings you closer to the summit. From the simple Voralpenberg up to the challenging high ski tours, a number of routes are available. Discover unknown terrains, stimulating summits with powdery descents and a beautiful 360-degree panorama.

  • Ski & snowboard

    Five winter sport areas ensure variety and pure downhill fun: Beatenberg-Niederhorn, Brienz-Axalp, Diemtigtal, Habkern and Aeschi-Aeschiried. Curve down the white slopes, leave your trail in powder snow and let yourself be mesmerised by the breath-taking scenery of the Bernese Oberland.
