Dorfloipe Blatten

Cross-country skiing in the magical Lötschental Valley, with quaint barns all along the way. This relatively flat ski trail near Blatten, the valley's furthermost commune, twists and turns on both sides of the river Lonza past Eisten hamlet, with 3,000-meter peaks all around you.
Blatten is the commune with the largest area in the Lötschental, and it is also the furthermost village in the valley. With its narrow alleyways, snug restaurants and blackened timber houses and barns, this village exudes an abundance of charm. Alongside intact villages amid pristine countryside, this district boasts plenty of peaks rising to 3,000 meters or more, such as the Bietschhorn – also known as the King of the Lötschental.

This circular trail begins just above the "Blatten (Lötschen) Post" PostBus stop and the large car park. It starts out across an extensive stretch of flat terrain. Warming up is the name of the game here! Then you cross the Lonza river, which rises on the Lang Glacier at the end of the valley and flows into the Rhone near Gampel. A gentle climb takes you towards the settlement of Fafleralp.

The route turns after you cross the bridge near the hamlet of Eisten. You can opt to glide back to the starting-point along the valley ski run, or through a small forested area. If you like, you can add a short extra loop. This involves an ascent with a superb view of Blatten. The final loop takes you to the houses at the lower entrance to the village (Chinngassä), past the wooden barns and back to the starting point.
