Rottenloipe Oberwald - Niederwald

  • start: Train station Oberwald
  • destination: Train station Niederwald

Enjoy carefree, almost endless gliding on the Rottenloipe as a part of the Goms cross-country trails. The perfectly groomed band through the snow-covered Goms plateau lies at an average altitude of 1300 m above sea level. Whether you prefer to enjoy the cross-country trail sporty or ambitious, there is something to suit every taste. Numerous variants are connected to the direct Oberwald-Niederwald piste of 19 km. This is how the total length of 26 km is calculated.

Each village has good access to the Goms cross-country ski trails as well as to the local railway system. This makes it easy to combine an extended day of cross-country skiing with covering routes with the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway. With the cross-country pass of Loipe Goms, you ride the train between Oberwald and Fiesch during its period of validity for free. Even without cross-country skiing equipment!

Near the cross-country ski runs there are numerous catering facilities in almost every mountain village. Take the opportunity and enjoy a warm soup, a homemade fruit cake or something hearty on one of the numerous sun terraces.
