Snowshoeing - Leysin

Snowshoeing - Leysin

Trekking on snowshoes is one of Leysin’s most popular activities in winter. It’s a veritable foretaste of the Far North with treks to the heart of nature. Snowshoes strapped on, whether with the kids on a family outing or with a group of friends, it’s the perfect escape !

At the heart of an unspoiled landscape, a winter hike on snowshoes provides an invigorating shot of vitamin D ! Snowshoes allow you to glide through the snow without sinking down into it. The traditional equipment of Canadian trappers has come a long way over the years. Now lighter and simpler to maneuver, it’s so much easier to set out on an adventure.

Leysin’s snowshoe trails are all pisted making it easy to access the snowy plains, to discover the picturesque forests of snow-capped pine trees and to reach iconic viewpoints such as Prafandaz with its stunning outlook on Lake Geneva.

Several cafés are en route offering the perfect excuse for a welcome warm-up or simply to swap stories of experiences along the way over a revitalising mug of hot chocolate.
