Safe and secure all the way, you traverse some truly impressive rock formations as you make your way up a total 305-meter climb in around 2 hours to find yourself at the top of the Eggishorn - best vantage point on the grand Aletsch Glacier and end point of the via ferrata.
The Valais village of Fiesch on the sunny side of the Rhone valley is located in the stepped Upper Goms valley, just at the entrance to the Fiescher valley. This family-friendly resort is the ideal starting point for excursions into the area round the Aletsch Glacier, the Goms Valley, over alpine passes and into the little town of Brig.
Children are a welcome and interesting challenge at the Snow Sports School of Fiesch-Eggishorn. With fun and play, young children above age 4 are introduced to skiing by means of a varied and entertaining instruction programme.
