From the Fiesch–Fieschertal railway crossing, it is no more than a few metres to the start of the cross-country trail on the right, near the campsite/paragliding landing area. The four-kilometre circuit leads from Fiesch into the valley towards Fieschertal and offers superb conditions for classic and skating-style skiing.

Safety information

Winter sports report  
  • The use of the trails is at your own risk.  
  • Use only marked trails and follow all markings and signs - for your own safety, for the protection of the landscape and in respect of wildlife. 
  • Be considerate towards other cross-country skiers.  
  • Every cross-country skier, especially on downhill runs, must adapt speed and behaviour to his ability and visibility.  
  • In classic running tracks and on the piste for free running technique, you run on the right side of the piste with an appropriate safety distance to the front runner.  
  • If you stop, you step out of the cross-country ski run.  
  • Weather conditions in the mountains can change very quickly and without warning. Appropriate clothing is very important.
