Riederalp is a family-friendly, car-free summer and winter holiday resort in the Upper Valais, located on a sunny high plateau, surrounded by park-like countryside at an altitude of almost 2000 metres above sea level. Riederalp provides ideal access to the first UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site in the Alps located by the Big Aletsch Glacier.
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.
