Shady woods, broad meadows and, in the St. Anna Chapel, a spiritual place for a brief moment of contemplation. Relaxed hiking at its finest!
Distance 3.8 km
The starting point of the hike is Aletsch Zoo at the valley station of the Fiesch-Eggishorn cable car. Set off along the Bregeraweg until it meets the hiking trail towards Bellwald. This trail then takes you uphill through beautiful shady woods via Gibelegga towards Fürgangen and on to the St. Anna Chapel. From there you walk across meadows to Bellwald. Take the Bellwald-Fürgangen cable car back into the valley to Fürgangen. There you catch the train back to Fiesch.
Fancy an adrenaline buzz? Make a detour to the Goms Bridge in Fürgangen. The 280m-long suspension bridge crosses the Rhone at a height of 92m.
