The Oeschinen Lake in the Bernese Oberland is one of the most eye-captivating mountain lakes in Switzerland.

Apart from the regular ski trails and backcountry skiing, you could try out the toboggan run. Toboggan is a narrow vehicle used for gliding on ice or snow. While you are indulging in thrill scenes, don’t miss out on enjoying a splendid view of Doldenhorn mountains.
