Tour description:

From the Lödensee car park, the path leads through an underpass into a dreamlike winter landscape: frozen lakes, snow-covered alpine meadows and the mountains of the Chiemgau Alps. It is not for nothing that this piece of earth not far from Ruhpolding is also called "Little Canada". The approximately four-kilometre-long, flattened winter hiking trail is a leisurely hike with only a few meters in altitude. On the way around Lödensee and Mittersee there is also a place to stop at Sepp at the Mitterseehütte.
