Bettmerhorn/Eggishorn - Aletsch glacier

Bettmeralp

It is worth taking the cable car up to the Bettmerhorn or Eggishorn if only to get a sense of just how colossal the Great Aletsch Glacier really is.

This natural spectacle can be admired just a few metres away from the mountain stations on these two peaks. On the Bettmerhorn, the more adventurous can continue on to the summit (30 mins) along a trail secured with fixed wire ropes and wooden steps.

    Spent a wonderful week at Bettmeralp/Reideralp last year. Out of this world scenery! Splendid and well signposted walks! Not just views of the east of Bernese Oberland but distant Matterhorn etc.. A great place for a summer vacation! The air superbly refreshing to my old lungs too!!!
