    Hiking around Daubensee Lake gives you a gentle work out with a great view of glaciers, the lake, and the surrounding summits. The hike itself is not strenuous but you have to mind a bit of exposure on the narrow trail. A picnic along the trail will let you soak in the picturesque setting. Every year, a shepherd festival is held to mark the friendship between the Bernese Oberland and the Vallais region where 800 sheep are herded to the banks of the lake on the last Sunday of July.
