The Panorama Tour is a real treat for skiers and snowboarders: it combines the most beautiful slopes and most stunning view points in a challenging circular ski tour.
Distance 35 km
On this circular trail, you ski from highlight to highlight – right across the entire ski area of the Aletsch Arena and back. First-class skiing and snowboarding pleasure is followed again and again by stunning nature experiences and superb views of the Great Aletsch Glacier and the Valais mountains. The route of this unique panoramic ski circular tour takes you to the breathtaking view points of the Aletsch Arena no less than four times. The circular tour begins on Riederalp, although Bettmeralp and Fiescheralp also make suitable starting points. The trail is clearly marked throughout with red trail signs with the glacier symbol. To summarise: if you’re a sporty skier or snowboarder in good physical condition, you’ll enjoy this spectacular one-day tour and definitely won’t forget it in a hurry.
If you want to do the entire Gletschi Tour in a single day with optimum skiing conditions, you should set by off 10:00 at the latest.
