With this "cross-country hotel hopping offer" you explore the paradise of silver tracks in Saanenland for 5 days - 4 nights. You stay 2 nights at the Hotel Alpenland in Lauenen and enjoy the cross-country tracks in the Rohr nature reserve. Afterwards you go to Gstaad-Schönried to the ERMITAGE Wellness & Spa Hotel, where you can explore the cross-country skiing area between Schönried and Saanenmöser for another 2 days and 2 nights. On the transfer day, the options are open to you, because if you wish, we can take care of the luggage transport to the next hotel for you - so how about a detour to the Turbach Valley covered in deep snow?

2 nights in Lauenen: Unspoilt nature, tranquillity and freshly groomed cross-country ski runs.

At the Hotel Alpenland in the cosy chalet village of Lauenen, you can get on the cross-country ski trail right in front of the hotel - what could be better? Glide along the Louwibach stream through the Rohr moor and meadow area towards Lake Lauenen. An easy, flat and, in fine weather, sunny route awaits you. After a few kilometres, you can choose the long or short variant. The perfect trail to start your cross-country skiing holidays! Back at the hotel, the mountain sauna and culinary highlights with regional products (13 Gault Millau points) await, which you can enjoy with a breathtaking view of the surrounding peaks. Our tip: The Lauener specialities or the rustic cheese fondue in the charming, small Fondue-Hüttli!

By the way, at the Hotel Alpenland you can rent the complete cross-country skiing equipment for your cross-country tours around the hotel. Would you like technical input to start your tour? No problem, the hotel will be happy to organise your personal cross-country instructor.

Cross-country skiing tip for the transfer day: the deep snow-covered Turbachtal valley.

Run on the training course of the local, former World Cup cross-country skier Nathalie von Siebenthal from Lauenen - who knows, maybe you'll manage to beat the athlete's time?
While you're at it, enjoy the view of the surrounding mountains. In the Turbachtal, the idyllic side valley of Gstaad, nestled between the Wistätthorn, Tube and Giferspitz, the sunny plain invites you to a leisurely round in a magnificent winter landscape. The cross-country ski trail runs from the village to Wintermatte and back again. The post bus takes you from Gstaad to the starting point of the cross-country trail in Turbach in a quarter of an hour (stop "Turbach, Post").

2 nights in Schönried: Across the plateau and through dreamy forests

The cross-country skiing area between Schönried and the chalet village of Saanenmöser promises plenty of sunshine and a beautiful panoramic view of the mountains around Gstaad. First the trail winds through dreamy forest sections and then it crosses the Moos plateau. The terrain is varied, wide-ranging and offers gentle climbs as well as a few descents. Afterwards, round off your cross-country skiing holiday with again extensive relaxation and enjoyment at Hotel ERMITAGE.
