Nature park and cross-country paradise

45 km of cross-country ski trails for traditional skiing and skating combine the main departure points: Schwarzenbühl/Selital, Ottenleuebad and the Gurnigel water divide. The network is supplemented by several somewhat more demanding secondary routes. The cross-country ski trails with reliable snowfalls and views of the Gantrisch range, Lake Thun and the Alps are suitable for dedicated sportspersons as well as amateur cross-country skiers.

Peace, views, space, sun and lengthy distances – the Gantrisch cross-country ski region and beautiful pre-Alp landscapes along with the Gantrisch nature park, on the threshold to the city of Bern, is a most popular spot for top athletes and ski hikers alike.

Gägger walkway: Storm-damaged timber

Pristine wilderness: At the end of 1999, ‘Lothar’, the storm of the century, destroyed large expanses of forest in the "Gägger" forest reserve. The buckled storm-damaged timber and the forest scars that are slowly undergoing revegetation can all be viewed from a raised wooden walkway: enjoyment for all nature lovers! Here, visitors will gain unique insights into burgeoning nature and the natural development of an area subjected to storm damage.
