You’ll need a head for heights to cross the 280m-long Goms-Bridge suspension bridge. It’s the highlight of this easy tour and offers amazing views.
Distance 7.5 km
Start from the Aletsch Zoo and continue on the Bregeraweg trail towards Fieschertal. After the railway crossing, take the path that branches off right and continue via Gibelegg and the Äbiwald forest to Fürgangen. Take the underpass and head to the Goms suspension bridge (which is accessible to wheelchair users and cyclists). From Mühlebach you can either continue alongside the water channel and through the meadows and fields, or via Mosshubel past the gallows to Ernen. Follow the path across Ärnerfäld down to the power station and cross the young Rhone before arriving at the starting point of the tour again.
Sightseeing tip: From Fiesch, take the Matterhorn-Gotthard Bahn up to the Goms Bridge, which is then just a short 300m walk from Fürgangen station.
