Magnificent circular tour with sublime view
Flumserberg is a winter paradise in intact natural surroundings high over the Walensee.
Seen from a distance, the Spitzmeilen resembles a small volcano. Up close, though, it turns out to be an imposing, rocky peak, evenly shaped and from this vantage point a unique panorama opens up around you.
We will take the cable car to the summit of the Maschgenkamm at 2, 020 m above sea level. On the way, you can already see the peak of the Spitzmeilen in the distance, dominating the horizon.
You will be rewarded with a magnificent panorama encompassing the majestic Churfirsten, Glarner and Bündner Alps.
At midday, we will be reaching Alp Fursch where we will enjoy a local lunch in a cosy mountain hut and, if available, you have the possibility to buy local mountain cheese. The snow shoe tour continues in a deeply-snowed spruce forest and finally descending comfortably back to the valley by cable car.
Meeting place: Zurich at the train station or to your convenience
This daily snow shoe tour will be approx. 4-5 hours with altitude differences from 200 to 300m. We will have plenty of time to do photos, view the beautiful deeply snowed peaks and the astonishing panorama. Since there are various possibilities of snow shoe tours in this region, I can adapt the length and level of this tour to your convenience.

The snow shoeing tour with Markus was just great! Markus is a caring and wonderful person. We really enjoyed his tour and will not hesitate to book other tours with him in the future. The itinerary he prepared for us was very thorough and he made sure we had a good time in the mountain!
