Central Switzerland: panoramic snowshoe circular hike

On snowshoes you will quickly immerse all your senses in the winter magic of the Rigi. Untouched snowy landscapes entice you to discover Yeti-style tours. A few metres off the beaten track, you will soon have the Rigi all to yourself. Those who prefer to stay close to the signposted and well-prepared winter trails can make a detour into the fresh snow from there.

Sign-posted snowshoe trails accompany beginners and inexperienced skiers through the alpine snow landscape. From the starting point on Rigi Kulm, this stunning trail takes you about 1 to 2.5 hours into the Chäserenholz area.

Snowshoeing does not require any special technical skills and can be practiced by anyone, even on the prepared winter hiking trails.

You can rent the necessary equipment at the Rigi Kulm Rental centre and at the Rigi-Sport-Kiosk on Rigi Kaltbad.

For your information

You can find the current operating status of the lifts and sledge runs here.

In order to let our next generation also could enjoy the beauty of the Rigi, we would like to ask you to dispose of your own waste in the waste bins which are located at all of the stations of RIGI BAHNEN AG. Thank you.
