This wonderful winter hike is very popular, and with good reason. After a certain amount of physical effort on the ascent to the Wurzenbord, the rest of the route is a leisurely hike through a proverbial winter wonderland.
Starting by the Hotel Aletsch at the eastern edge of Bettmeralp village, hike downhill past the Möriken camp. The route runs parallel to the Wurzenbord chairlift on a relatively steep incline towards the Wurzenbord. After circumventing the Wurzenbord to the right, the winter hiking trail bends sharply to the left and continues to the Bättmer Hitta. This is the end of the big climb; from here, the trail runs eastwards over flat terrain, past the unspoilt and snow-covered meadows and slopes of Martisbergeralp and Laxeralp, and across to Fiescheralp.
