So let us present the 2 epic snowshoeing trails in Valais, which we got to experience on a sunny weekend in January:

1# Riederalp & Aletschgletscher

Imagine snowshoeing along the longest glacier in Europe! Well, good news, it's possible in the region of Valais! The famous Aletsch glacier with its length of almost 23 km can be admired from the mountain ridge between Belalp, Riederalp or Eggishorn, and this is possible even on your snowshoes! How cool is that? 😄

2# Simplon Pass

For those who want to make sure that there is A LOT of snow on your snowshoeing adventure, then head to the breathtaking Simplon Pass! It's a true winter wonderland at an altitude of 2000 m! This is not only a great place for snowshoeing but also for ski touring (a dream!!) and snowboarding with a kite (what's the official name for that?), as there is a special place for that. We were blown away by this PLACE!

Snowshoeing trail Simplon Kulm - Where You Want

  • park your car behind the hotel Simplon Kulm Bellevue -> your starting point
  • follow the snowshoeing trail, starting right from the parking 
  • along the way you will most probably see a place where snowboarders learn to kite, really cool!
  • another option is to cross the road and start snowshoeing in the direction of the wooden statue (eagle) 
  • you can't do anything wrong with the direction, as there is so much snow for this kind of adventure
  • check out the weather and snow conditions before you go

    My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
