Hiking: Aletsch panorama trail

Hive above the glacier

The Aletsch Glacier has been a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site since 2001. 23 kilometres of ice descend here from the Jungfrau into the Valais, making the glacier one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the Alpine region. But this hiking tour is not only about the perpetual ice. You will hike over suspension bridges, visit the Aletsch Forest, which is under nature conservation, and spend the night in mountain inns in the middle of the Valaisan mountains.
