Cross-country skiing is a passion and, at Lenk and in the Simmental, an absolute delight!

A rich variety of trails

The circular trail takes you through 10 charming kilometres, from Lenk to the Simmenfälle, and back. For the hobby athlete, the Lenk-St. Stephan-Zweisimmen trail offers the 13 kilometres. The wonderfully wide and flat valley floor, as well as the idyllic landscape, ensures that cross-country skiing is a real delight. Those who want to be closer to the mountainous areas can try out the Haslerberg-Betelberg trail which is at a sporty altitude of around 2’000 metres above sea level. Amazing views and superb landscapes are guaranteed on the Jaunpass-Boltigen trail, too.
