All about the Cross-country Skiing in the Swiss Alps.

Located in the heart of the Bernese Oberland, where the great arc of the Alps culminates in some of its highest and most spectacular peaks, Kandersteg is a cross-country skier’s paradise. This area epitomises the ‘chocolate-box’ Alps: wild mountains, topped with glistening glaciers. We stay at the charming Hotel Alfa Soleil, owned by the Seiler family. We explore the winter landscape and have the chance to develop both confidence and skill while discovering new routes and trails every time.
