Day 2: Snowshoeing the Berner Haute Route Map

Program: "The Finsteraarhorn Hut is today's destination. As the first rays of sun hit the Fiescher Gabelhorn peaks on the right and those of the Grünhorn on the left, you’ll see for yourself the truth of the claim that trekking tours open up a completely new perspective of the mountain world. The ascent on the Grüneggfirn to the Grünhornlücke is easy to manage. At the Finsteraar Hut, you can enjoy the amazing view of the glacier landscape. (Distance: 6 km. Hiking time: 5 hours; Ascent/Descent: 500/300 vertical meters)."
