The pristine Valais glaciers offer an unparalleled natural spectacle, which is why they have been designated as part of the UNESCO World Heritage. The giant rivers of ice are a wonder of nature, as impressive as they are instructive. Deep, dangerous crevasses, giant moraines and wild glacial creeks illustrate the incredible forces of the ice. This is an incomparable world that waits to be discovered: numerous hikes, routes and guided tours offer terrific views of the glaciers – and insights into their icy secrets.
Plaine Morte Glacier
The Plaine Morte Glacier is flat and in places as much as 200 meters thick – draining direction Lenk predominantly in the Bernese Oberland, but also in the Rhone Valley of Valais. Summit strolls are worth every minute, with views of the Rhone Valley, Valais side valleys and high Alps nicely lined up and standing to attention in the south - from Mischabel to Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. Do not miss the great experience of cross-country skiing on the glacier in Winter!
