This is how easy a glacier tour can be: get off the Swiss Post Bus at Hotel Steingletscher on the Susten Pass, shoulder your backpack, grab a hiking guide with map and off you go, comfortably hiking on well-groomed trails, without risks.
Bettmeralp: Alongside the Aletsch Glacier, which with a length of 23km is the longest ice flow of the Alps, the path takes you from the Bettmerhorn to the Märjelensee (Lake Märjelen).
The Grimsel area is a landscape of ancient stone and primeval forces. This pass has always been used to cross from North to South or vice-versa. It also constitutes the watershed between the North Sea and the Mediterranean and offers some spectacular hikes, ranging from easy strolls to challenging climbs on the vertical granite walls.
