This popular winter hike across the sun plateau has an attractive destination: the imposing Villa Cassel on Riederfurka.
Starting by the cable car mountain station on the edge of Bettmeralp, hike along the Aletschpromenade to Riederalp. Once you've left the wintry Alpine forest behind, you'll reach open ground. The impressive panoramic view of the snowy mountain scenery, including the Mischabel group, the Matterhorn, Weisshorn and down into the Rhone Valley, now follows you all the way. Continue uphill through the village until the path to Riederfurka branches off at the edge of Riederalp, leading up to the mountain ridge on a gentle incline. After about 45 minutes of enjoyable winter hiking, you'll reach your destination – the imposing Villa Cassel.
The Pro Natura Centre in the Villa Cassel is closed during the winter months.
