From Kandersteg, Sunnbüel cable car transports you to the winter hiking paradise. You can reach Kandersteg cable car on a short hike of half an hour or easily with the local bus. The second option in the Gemmi area  is the newly laid out and well groomed Altelsblick circular hiking trail. The approximately one-hour walk is particularly suitable for connoisseurs. From the starting point at the Sunnbüel mountain station, you always head towards Spittelmatti towards the sun.

Return: After a little refreshment in the mountain restaurant, take the cable car Sunnbüel back to Kandersteg. Enjoy the view of the Gasterntal valley during the ride.

Important information: Please note that the route is only accessible in good weather. Before tackling this Alpine pass hiking route please first enquire about the local weather conditions
