Gantrisch Nature Park

This countryside, a designated “Regional Nature Park” well worth preserving, offers plenty to discover: besides the rare flora and fauna, there are also hiking and bicycle routes that draw sports enthusiasts and nature lovers to the park.

Gantrisch Nature Park extends across the hilly terrain from Belp to the Schwarzsee, just outside of Bern. The area features large expanses of forest with idyllic villages and intermittent canyons, shielded by the prominent Gantrisch Range.

The Gürbe Valley Panoramic Trail with its one-of-a-kind view of the Alps is especially popular among hikers. And the views are unforget-table from the Gantrisch Panoramic Trail, a high-altitude trail through the foothills of the Alps.

And the views are unforgettable from the Gantrisch Panoramic Trail, a high-altitude trail through the foothills of the Alps. The biking landscape in the Nature Park is wonderfully di-verse: from flat trails to steep trails, from byroads to single trails – along the Gürbe, through the gentle hills to the west of Thun, and into the expansive forests leading up to the Gurnigel. And the Gantrisch Nature Park also offers plenty of high-altitude action. The rope park in Längeney Forest is an extra-special experience.

But the park also offers sport enthusiasts a wealth of winter activities. A stone’s throw from Bern, the cross-country skiing center in Gantrisch has 45 kilometers of perfectly groomed cross-country trails at a snow-sure elevation of 1450 to 1650 meters above sea level.
