Gitschenen skiing fun

Pay one way and return free of charge

Skiing on the Alp Gitschen in Isenthal? Not a problem! Discover this treasure for winter sports in the Uri mountains. Travel by PostBus, pay one way and return with the same ticket.

A journey that leads from Altdorf to Isenthal, high above Lake Lucerne, and at the foot of Uri’s imposing Rotstock. And already the curve-rich PostBus ride from Altdorf to Isenthal is a thrilling experience at any age.  

A uniquely beautiful natural backdrop awaits visitors on arriving at your Alp Gitschenen destination; which you get to by means of a cable car.
Skiing here is enjoyed amid pristine nature surrounded by the stunning Uri mountain world. A beginner’s slope is there for children - and the cosy Berggasthaus Gitschenen for a drink or bite to eat as you take in the view.

Outward journey

From Altdorf UR Post with PostBus route 405 to Isenthal, Seilbahn St. Jakob.

Saving offer:
Pay just one-way for roundtrip travel.
On your homebound journey (from the Isenthal, Seilbahn St. Jakob stop) all you need to do is show the postbus driver your single ticket there, together with a day or season ticket for the Gitschenen ski lift, and you ride back to Altdorf/Flüelen for free!
