This route begins at the Bussalp bus station. A breathtaking view of the snow-covered peaks of the Bernese Alps already awaits you here. At the beginning, the snowshoe trail runs parallel to the road and the toboggan run for approx. 300 metres. Shortly after crossing the Bussalpbach stream, the trail branches off to the east (right) and climbs via Paffenegg up to the Steessiboden area. Between the fir trees, the Wetterhorn and the Schreckhorn shine in all their glory. The great view of the mountain world quickly makes you forget the stress and hectic of everyday life.The descent follows over snow-covered mats down to the late Boden and on to the Rasthysi restaurant. From here the trail leads via Holewang to the Nodhalten area, where it finally meets the First - Waldspitz - Bort sledging trail. From Bort you can take the cable car back to the village.

Getting There

Public transport

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour.

Getting there

There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.

From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.
