Hockenhorngrat-Lötschenpass snowshoe trail
Embark on the high alpine snowshoe trail to the Lötschenpasshütte refuge.
Surrounded by a breathtaking mountain landscape, you get to enjoy the unique high-alpine snowshoe trail to the Lötschenpasshütte refuge. Let yourself be captivated.
The RegioExpress takes you directly from Bern or Brig to Goppenstein. From there, the post bus takes you to the Wiler valley station in ten minutes. You then take the cable car to the Hockenhorngrat ridge.
From the mountain station of the Hockenhorngrat ridge, the high-alpine snowshoe tour leads down below the imposing Hockenhorn into an impressive landscape towards the Lötschen Pass. The Lötschenpasshütte refuge sits at an altitude of 2,700 metres and delights visitors with stunning views of the mountain world. It is well worth taking a break in the cosy hut. The ascent back to the Hockenhorngrat at 3,100 metres begins immediately afterwards.
We recommend starting the hike by 10.00 a.m. and leaving the Lötschenpasshütte to return by 1.30 p.m. If you would like to enjoy the untouched nature for longer, an overnight stay at the Lötschenpasshütte refuge is recommended.
