You’d like to enjoy the beauty of nature in a totally relaxed manner? In this case, the Moosalp region is just the place for you - particularly when the first falling snowflakes turn the region into an enchanting winter paradise.
Snow-covered birch and pine trees, extensive stretches of snow and breath-taking panoramas invite you to lengthy snowshoe hikes or leisurely winter walks. As you set off on crisp, freshly fallen snow from village to village you come across some of the loveliest vantage points - and of course an absolute highlight in Switzerland is the panorama path.
Particularly peaceful is the attractive panorama road from Törbel to Bürchen, or the other way round. You arrive at the Törbel – Furen departure point having taken a Postbus from Visp or Stalden, and it’s here you view the sun-tanned houses that shape the village picture. With no great change in altitude, you then make your way through snowy woods as far as the picturesque Obere Hellela von Zeneggen hamlet. A gentle descent to Bürchen – Ronalp then follows, before you once again depart by Postbus
