Arrival to Ulrichen
Ulrichen – Blitzingen
On a sunny slope above the Rhone through Goms. With little height difference along the mountain flanks, through forests and Alpine pastures. Sun-browned old storage huts and barns. Views deep into the valley to villages striking for their compact design.
Blitzingen – Binn
Through tiny traditional villages in lush pastures to Ernen, where well-kept buildings and the «William Tell House» (oldest painting of Tell), are a surprise. Through the impressive Twingischlucht gorge into «mineral valley» to Binn.
Binn – Rosswald / Brig
The attractive pass hike over the Saflischpass affords the first views of the Valais 4'000-metre-mountain world. The village of Rosswald offers views down into the Rhone Valley from its scenic terrace. At the end of the hike overnight stay in Brig.
By bus and cable car back to Rosswald. A varied stage, with panoramic scenery throughout: Alpine climb to Bortelhütte, blueberry picking above Rothwald in autumn. The trail leads along the pass road gallery from Schallbett to the Simplonpass.
Departure or extra nights
A smooth start in the beginning in the valley of Goms. As soon as you reach Simplonpass the trails get more rugged. Good physical condition is required to walk the long legs. A walk for experienced hikers.
