Cross-country skiing in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland is like a fairytale. This part of the country is one of the biggest nature conservation areas in Switzerland. It's magical to practise this sport in a scenery like that - a beautiful valley, surrounded by majestic mountains, partly covered in snow, with views on iced waterfalls.
There are 12 km of slopes leading from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg, for both, skating and also classical way of cross-country skiing.
There is a daily fee of 6 Swiss francs; the weekly ticket costs 25 CHF. But don't get discouraged. It's really worth it. Hello, with a scenery like that?! :) If you want to hire the cross-country equipment, make sure to stop by at Alpia Sport in Lauterbrunnen.
You can get the ticket at the tourism information office in Lauterbrunnen or at the Eyelti sport center. Free parking is also available at the Eyelti center.
We barely met anyone else, we basically had the slopes for ourselves...
