A lakeside hut in the snow? This touch of Scandinavia can be found around lake #Arnisee in @ferienregionuri! It’s the perfect romantic winter setting, as this photo by @noberson shows. It’s a peaceful, idyllic place that great for a bit of exercise. There are snowshoe trails around the lake, and you can rent equipment nearby. Looking for something a little more active? No problem! From lake Arnisee, you can set out on a range of ski tours. Getting there is easy: From Amsteg, ride on a small gondola cable car. Once you reach the upper station, it’s a short walk to the lake.
