The snowshoe trail leads over the Simplon Pass to the "Weng" hill. While walking you can enjoy the 360 ° view of the surrounding mountains. If the Fletschhorn dominates at the beginning, after around 30 minutes the hikers have a view to the north of the Aletsch area and the Bernese Alps. The trail is accessible early in winter thanks to its sunny location. The hike is especially beautiful with fresh snow. Thanks to its high location and flat plains, the Simplon Pass is a wonderful hiking area. Especially in winter, the pass landscape shows an undiscovered, romantic side. In the Simplon hospice or in the restaurants, winter sports enthusiasts can take care of themselves or warm up after the hike. You can easily reach the Simplon pass by postbus from Brig or Domodossola. Free parking spaces are also available on the pass.
