Distance 4.5 km
From Riederalp Mitte, head towards the east along the Aletsch Promenade to Golmenegg, where you take the winter hiking trail that branches off downhill. Passing St. Bernhard’s chapel and some beautiful old Valais houses, the route now continues east through a light forest landscape via Biel and Flesch. After a short climb you rejoin the Aletsch Promenade close to Restaurant Adler. Now follow this road in a westerly direction back to Riederalp.
