Where Is It?
To access this amazing trail you have to drive to Stoos and take the spectacular funicular railway! This steep railway ride will make your heart beat faster! After you reach the top, follow the signs "Schneeschuhwanderweg". There are many snowshoe trails on the mountain, but if you want to enjoy the breathaking view over the Lake Lucerne, you will have to look for the peak called: Fronalpstock. To this peak leads a STEEP trail which lasts for about 2-2.5 hours (depends how fit you are). Don't give up! You will miss this amazing view from the top - check the photos below! There is also a restaurant in case you would like to drink your coffee or have a proper lunch! If you are too tired to descend, you can rent out sleds at the restaurant and take the hilarious sledding slope back down! However, we decided to snowshoe all the way back down and honestly, it was so much fun! Now have a look at the photos:
We even caught the sunset over the Lucerne Lake! What an amazing moment!
Snowshoeing is such an amazing winter sport adventure and we can recommend it to everyone. I can't move my legs after this hike but I don't regret any minute of it! Now go and try it yourself! ;)
