The cable cars take you up to Blauherd. The stunning Four Lakes route (4-Seen-Tour) starts from here. After a brief descent, the route heads left to the first lake – Stellisee. Here you can see a stunning reflection of the Matterhorn in the lake.
If you now fancy a coffee, head up to Fluhalp and enjoy the view from the terrace of the surrounding mountains.
The route continues down to Grindjisee and Grünsee. In Grünsee, you can see a reflection of not only the Matterhorn, but other magnificent mountains as well.
The last lake you reach is Moosjisee. It is a very different colour from the other three lakes. Moosjisee is a typical glacier lake, and this gives it its cloudy appearance. From there, the route heads back to Sunnegga.
Tip: “Be searchable”. Equip yourself with an additional RECCO rescue reflector*. Whether summer or winter. Available in our Online-Shop or our information desk. *The additional reflector does not replace an avalanche beacon.
