Cross-country skiing in the valley of 72 waterfalls, surrounded by a panorama of peaks of several three and four thousand metres.

The route leads from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg along the white Lütschine and past the Trümmelbach Falls, considered the largest underground waterfalls in Europe.

The alpine topography naturally offers little space for Nordic cross-country skiing. Nevertheless, there is a cross-country ski trail between Lauterbrunnen and Stechelberg in the valley floor. And this is spectacular: 72 waterfalls line the path between the two mountain villages. The route always leads along the White Lütschine, past the icy cascades.

The Mürrenbach Falls are passed shortly before the finish line. It holds another record: the masses of water plunge in five cascades over 417 metres into the depth. It is thus the highest waterfall in Switzerland.

The trail leads to Stechelberg and back to Lauterbrunnen. The end of the valley is a large nature reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch. Stechelberg is the starting point for various high mountain tours.
