Cross-country skiing in the Bernese Oberland
That’s interesting – or maybe exhausting? With cross-country skiing, we can not only glide down the slope on skis, we can also «torture» ourselves going up the hill on the snow. But with a well-maintained cross-country track – this is of course standard in the Bernese Oberland – we have already won half the battle. These kinds of cross-country skiing trails can be found in the Jungfrau Region. Even trails that are lit up at night.
The Bernese Oberland is known as a paradise for cross-country skiing, thanks to its mountain scenery and well-prepared cross-country trails that reach far beyond the borders of Switzerland. Anything that doesn’t fit into your luggage can be easily rented or bought in selected shops in the Jungfrau Region in the Bernese Oberland. Cross-country skiing passes can be purchased at tourist offices and many other points of sale.
Grindelwald Grund – Glacier Gorge
Natural motivation will certainly not be missing in front of this scenery. The cross-country trail in Grindelwald Grund is easily accessible by bus or train. A large car park is also available. The varied route leads through forests and over open areas. Outside the forest, the view of the snow-covered peaks is so overwhelming that you should stop for a moment to let the power of the mountains work their magic on you.
The 9 km classic or 10.5 km skating are very suitable for beginners. On the flat track, the new movements are quickly learned and improved, preferably under the guidance of a cross-country skiing instructor. A small changing room is available in the Aspi (golf course). Showers are not available.
