Tour description

This is a leisurely hike for true connoisseurs: it gives hikers a chance to explore all three villages on the sun plateau and rewards them with spectacular panoramic views for relatively little effort.

A flat path leads from the starting point in Fiescheralp to the Laxeralp and onwards to the Bättmer Hitta. From here the route runs downhill: after a short walk you'll reach Bettmeralp and pass through the village. By the mountain station of the cable car at the edge of the village, continue hiking towards Riederalp. Once you've left the beautiful mountain forest behind you'll reach open country. The impressive panoramic view of the Mischabel group, the Matterhorn and Weisshorn, down into the Rhone Valley and over to Riederalp West now follows you all the way as you hike the final section to Riederalp.

The Bettmeralp – Riederalp section is an asphalt road and illuminated at night.
