The Great Aletsch Glacier, landscapes shaped by the perpetual ice, colourful alpine flora and an idyllic glacial lake. Experience glorious nature in all its facets!
The starting point of the hike is the Bettmerhorn view point, two minutes’ walk from the Bettmerhorn cable-car mountain station (2,647m). At first the route takes you gently downwards via “Uf de Setzu” towards Roti Chumma. The Great Aletsch Glacier is constantly in your sights on this section of the trail, and each step brings you closer. Following the path cut in the rock with stone steps, you head towards Märjela, Märjelensee and the “Gletscherstube” mountain hut. You return to the sunny plateau of the Aletsch Arena via Unneres Tälli or Oberes Tälli (or take a shortcut through the kilometre-long, illuminated Tälligrattunnel). Walk as far as Salzgäb and then follow the path downhill to Fiescheralp. The last section of this fantastic hike takes you back to Bettmeralp.
Enjoy a break in the idyllically situated Gletscherstube to relive your impressions of the Great Aletsch Glacier!
