Turn-by-turn directions

From Blatten, follow the winter hiking trail up to the Fafleralp car park. The winter ascent to the Anenhütte is signposted and marked with red posts.
From the Fafleralp car park, continue on past Gletscheralp, after 150 m turn right over the Lonza bridge rising gently through the last larch forest. From the Grundsee lake, follow the middle of the valley through unbelievably beautiful countryside up to the next bridge where you switch to the other side of the valley. The climb is a little steeper from here. The final slopes are a little more challenging but are nevertheless manageable. Your ascent will be well rewarded when you arrive at the Anenhütte. There is overnight accommodation in the Anenhütte if you wish. For further information on the Anenhütte: Tel. +41 (0)79 864 66 44, www.anenhuette.ch.

Return along the same route to Blatten (Duration: approx. 3 hours).

Please contact Peter Tscherrig, Mountain Guide and Anenhütte warden with any queries about trail conditions: Tel. +41 (0) 79 864 66 44
