More power? - Then the sun track is the perfect additional round on the valley trail.

At Engelberg railway station, the free local bus is available for winter sports enthusiasts and takes them to the various starting points. For cross-country skiers, the stop to remember is called "Sportingpark". From the train station also reachable on foot in 5 minutes. The Sonnenloipe branches off from the Talloipe at camping Eienwäldli. It leads up the sunny side of the valley to the valley station of the Fürenalp cable car. You can either go back the same way or on the valley cross-country trail. Another entrance and exit is at the end of the Oberbergstrasse at the terminus of the ski bus. The Sonnenloipe is also connected to the Soodrundloipe. This means that the trail can be up to 10km long and is the perfect route to enjoy the sun.
