Fröschenseeli-Loipe

Langis at Glaubenbergpass is perfect for cross-country skiing and an insider tip for nature-lovers, too: the run to Fröschenseeli passes through a protected upland moor landscape surrounded by pine forests. The area was once a well-known upmarket spa resort.
An unspoilt sun-drenched area above Lake Sarnen, Langis is a paradise for cross-country skiers. It is located directly at the top of the Glaubenberg Pass (1543 metres above sea level) on the Obwalden side. Langis has the longest interconnected network of cross-country skiing runs in Central Switzerland. Even Boris Becker has been here to do his rounds.

It is about 300 metres from the car park to the start of the run, which you can cover wearing your skis. The first half of the Fröschenseeli route passes over mostly flat, slightly wooded terrain passed the Andresenhütte cabin to Schwendi-Kaltbad, a former spa resort. The turning point at Fröschenseeli is somewhat hidden in the upland moor and is reached via Schlierentalhütte. The birch trees, mountain pines and frozen moor lake are reminiscent of holidays in the far north, with a glittering blanket of snow is spread out across the heather and moss cushions. The Titlis, Hochstollen and Wetterhorn peaks dominate the mountain chain.

The return route passes down the other side of the valley through wooded terrain as far as Schwendi-Kaltbad. The chapel of the Holy Virgin is situated directly alongside the ski run. It commemorates the “cold bath in the Schwendi”. After a spring was tapped into here in 1642 with water rich in iron, a well-known hotel was established with moor and sulphur baths. This burned down in 1970, however. An outbuilding of the former spa complex was converted into a Beizli refreshment hut in the style of a Canadian log cabin. Once you have had drink or a snack here, it is approximately two kilometres back to the starting point.
