Naturpark Gantrisch - The Gantrisch is a cross-country skiing paradise par excellence: A stunning alpine panorama awaits you here, with views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, Lake Thun, snow-covered forests and 45 km of perfectly groomed trails.

Situated on Bern's doorstep, the Gantrisch Cross-Country Skiing Centre prepares 45 kilometres of excellently groomed trails every year at snow-assured altitudes of between 1,450 and 1,650 metres above sea level for skate and classic-style cross-country skiing. This also includes the approximately 14-km-long "Königsloipe" - the circular trail on the main network that runs from the Gurnigel Wasserscheide to Ottenleuenbad and back.
The Gantrisch cross-country skiing paradise consists of 45 km of primary and secondary trails. The main entry points are Schwarzenbühl Selital, Ottenleuebad and Gurnigel Wasserscheide. Aspiring skiers without their own cross-country skiing equipment won't have to forego all this enjoyment however. Sports equipment can be hired from three sites in the area. The region also offers cross-country skiing lessons. The Gantrisch Cross-Country Skiing Centre lies between Schwarzenbühl Selital, Ottenleue-Bad and Gurnigel Wasserscheide, the three entrances to the trail.
