The two-day guided hiking tour is a highlight of the unique mountain world of the UNESCO World Heritage region Swiss Alps Jungfrau – Aletsch. The Aletsch Glacier hike leads across the great Aletsch Glacier, which at 23 kilometers length and a surface area of 80 square kilometers is the longest and largest glacier in Western Europe.
The highest and most beautiful peaks of the Swiss Alps can be seen in the impressive mountain panorama on the Europe Route. The Mischabel group, the Weisshorn and of course the world famous Matterhorn compete for the favour of the observer. Only once does the path drop down to the floor of the valley, between Gspon and Zermatt. Otherwise the path snakes it’s way, sometimes in a daring manner along the steep sides of the Saaser and Matter valleys. Places such as Saas Fee, Grächen and Zermatt lie directly on the route. Five days of top class mountain walking.
This walk starts in the heart of Geneva, passing through a particularly charming corner of the city on its way to the Rhone and out into the countryside. For long stretches it follows the river bank, which is home to over seventy animal species and is one of the best protected areas in Switzerland.
A wonderful waterworld: 100 kilometres of hiking trails run through the sun-drenched Nendaz region along these historic irrigation channels.
