This five-hour mountain walk starts on the Belalp. The glacier crossing commences after a three-hour walk to the periphery of the Aletsch glacier. The mountain guide will rope up the walkers and strike steps into the ice with his pickaxe; the steeper sections too are negotiated comfortably using this method. This unique experience is followed by a one-hour ascent to the Riederfurka through the Aletsch forest nature reserve.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
