Tour description

An enjoyable winter hike along the Aletschpromenade, offering a wonderful alternative route past old Valais houses for the outward journey or the way back.

It's best to start this winter hike from the mountain station of the Bettmeralp cable car. From there, hike westwards along the Aletschpromenade towards Riederalp. Once you reach Golmenegg, leave the path and follow the winter hiking trail that branches off downhill. Passing St. Bernard's Chapel and some beautiful old Valais houses, the route now runs back eastwards through a bright forest landscape via Biel and Flesch . After a short climb you'll find your way back to the Aletschpromenade by the Restaurant Adler. From here you can hike back to Bettmeralp.

This circular hike can also be walked in the opposite direction or starting from Riederalp.
