Tour description

A wonderful winter hike past snow-covered mountain pastures and down to the beautiful Valais village of Betten. You can also discover some of the history of the Valaisans along the way.

From the cable car mountain station, start by hiking through the lower part of Bettmeralp village. Enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of the Valais mountain scenery as you follow the trail past charming chalets and the Alpmatten ski lift towards Ried. The route winds its way past the snow-covered Alpine meadows of Domo and Breiten down to Egga, the oldest part of Betten village, where you'll find some particularly beautiful Valais houses. From here it's just a short hike to the main part of Betten. It's well worth planning a tour of the village before you catch the cable car back up to Bettmeralp.
