Impressive mountain hike in the heart of a spectacular glacier world.

Description

Felskinn-Britannia-Plattjen (Alpine route)

Take the Felskinn Railway from Saas-Fee to Felskinn (2,991m). From there, the Alpine route will lead you over the Fee and Chessjen Glaciers to the Britannia Hut. From the Britannia Hut (3,030m, SAC), you can enjoy a fantastic view of Mattmark Dam and the surrounding area. Afterwards, descend to the Heidefriedhof (2,734m) via the Chessjen Glacier and traverse the well-marked path down the southeasterly slope of the Mittaghorn, before descending to the upper station of the Plattjen Railway (2,570m). From here, the cable car will take you back to Saas-Fee.

The route is challenging but can be completed without a mountain guide. Sturdy footwear and hiking poles are highly recommended!

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
