Tour description

A relaxed and leisurely hike full of entertainment value: with two viewpoints, the view of the Great Aletsch Glacier and the Pro Natura Centre Aletsch on Riederfurka, this beautiful hiking trail certainly has a lot to offer.

It starts at the Bettmerhorn mountain station, one of the three viewpoints in the Aletsch Arena. From here, the trail runs westwards along the ridge via Hohbalm and Biel to the mountain station of the Moosfluh combination lift. At the second viewpoint on the hike there is another chance to enjoy a sensational panoramic view of the Great Aletsch Glacier and the impressive 4,000-metre peaks of Valais. The route continues towards Hohfluh and then to Riederfurka, where a visit to the Pro Natura Centre housed in the imposing Villa Cassel is highly recommended. The final stage of the trail leads down from Riederfurka to Riederalp.
