Turn-by-turn directions

The route starts in the village of Sörenberg with a steep climb to the Glaubenbielen Pass. Want to bet you barely notice the acuteness of the gradient? You can enjoy the gorgeous scenery on the way up. The views of Lake Sarnen from the summit are breathtaking and will soon have you forgetting your exertions. You then descend all the way down to Giswil then follow the lake to Sarnen. How about a breather by the water? The tour then continues via Stalden, rising to the second pass, the Glaubenberg. Take particular care as you cross the many cattle grids. You may well encounter cows on the road on the Obwalden side. There are places where you can stop for a bite to eat just before the pass crossing, including the Berghotel Langis and Bergrestaurant Schwendi-Kaltbad. There is another small one at the pass itself, surrounded by mesmerising moorland scenery. The pass is followed by a descent via Gfellen and Finsterwald to Entlebuch. Here, you follow the Emme and head for Schüpfheim before the route makes a final climb. You then arrive in Sörenberg, the village you originally left from.
