This snowshoe trail leads over the Simplon Pass to the Wenghorn and offers a 360° view of the surrounding mountains. To the north, the panorama stretches up to the Aletsch region and its famous UNESCO Word Heritage glacier, as well as the Bernese Alps. Hikers can enjoy the view from the very beginning of winter, thanks to the trail’s sunny location. In winter, the landscape surrounding the pass is both picturesque and romantic, quite apart from being a wonderful hiking area thanks to its high location and flat plains. Winter sports enthusiasts can take a rest or warm up after their hike at the Simplon hospice or in one of the restaurants.
