Unique Aletsch Forest

The ‘Pro Natura’ nature reserve belongs to the most impressive forests in Switzerland. The vegetation in the light mountain forest comprises larches, stone pines and dwarf shrubs. Around 330 ha of the Aletsch forest, endangered earlier due to overgrazing, have stood under a protection order since 1933: from the forest-free ridge of the Hohflue and Moosflue across closed stretches of forest to the glacier periphery with its moraines.

The Aletsch Glacier is Central Europe's largest glacier. On its Southern flank there is a unique kind of nature reserve. This interesting hike connects Kühboden on beautiful hiking trails to the Aletsch Forest. The views onto the glacier and the surrounding mountains are overwhelming.
