The treasure hunt starts at the Aletsch Arena Info Center in Fiesch: ask there for the treasure map. The first station is at the old valley station Fiesch-Eggishorn. Then continue along Bregeraweg to Fieschertal. On the way back to Fiesch, follow the Gogwärgiweg themed trail. The 5.3km route takes you past all eight puzzle stations, hand-carved wooden dwarfs (Gogwärgini) and a playground. The activity (including treasure map and treasure) is free of charge.

Author’s recommendation

Great for the kids to let off steam: there is a fantastic playground in Fieschertal and even have a barbecue.
