Idea 4: Grandiose glaciers and rock stars

You don't have to be an intrepid glacier trekker to get close to the longest river of ice in the Alps. Nature is on a grand scale in Valais and the mighty Aletsch Glacier is the icing on the cake.

A UNESCO World Heritage site – the snow-clad Aletsch

A classic winter hike from Fiescheralp to Bettmeralp and Riederalp

13 Kilometer-long toboggan fun

13 kilometres of tobogganing fun: the Fiescheralp is easily accessible by aerial cableway and then by typical Valais Gosky sleigh.

Up on the Fiescheralp tobogganists are surrounded 4000-meter-high peaks as far as the eye can see. A breathtaking mountain world together with attractive toboggan run from the Fiescheralp to Lax make this an unforgettable experience for all the family.
