Winterwandern Riederalp

Winterwandern Riederalp

Tour description

Hiking through a snowy forest is an awesome experience. On this winter hike you can enjoy the idyllic surroundings of the fairytale Riederwald forest – and a fascinating view into the distance throughout.

Hike along the Aletschpromenade from Riederalp towards Bettmeralp until you reach the crystal shop, where the winter hiking trail branches off down to Oberried. At the lower end of the sun plateau, the route initially runs westwards across open ground before entering the magical, snowy Riederwald. Enjoy a leisurely hike along the idyllic winter hiking trail and downhill to Oberried. Once there, follow the road past the hamlets of Wyde, Matte and Summerseili until you reach Ried-Mo¨rel, where you can ride the cable car back to Riederalp or down to Mörel.
