On Sunday 4. March Claudia Förtig will be leading a snowshoeing hike in the beautiful area of Maria-Rickenbach. What better way to experience the snow and be close to nature!
The group will meet at 10:00 at the Luftseilbahn Dallenwil-Niederrickenbach (6383 Dallenwil), which is 30 minutes drive from Luzern. From there the gondola ride to Maria-Rickenbach is 8 minutes. The snowshoeing hike itself will take around 2 – 2 1/2 hours at a relaxed pace. There will be a lunch break at the Restaurant Pilgerhaus.

What to expect:
You will get a wonderful snow experience with snowshoes. The walking with snowshoes is totally different to anything else. It is more exhausting than normal hiking. I always recommend to walk like John Wayne (just getting of his horse).
We will be hiking for around 2 – 2 1/2 hours for a distance of nearly 6 km. The hike starts with a very steep part and involves in total a climb of 300 m. Therefore you should be in good shape. I recommend this hike for children older than 13. You can find a map online at: www.maria-rickenbach.ch/wp-content/uploads/schneeschuhkarte-maria-rickenbach.pdf.
We can have lunch at the Restaurant Pilgerhaus. They offer delicious freshly cooked dishes and it’s my favourite mountain Restaurant (www.pilgerhaus-maria-rickenbach.ch)
