Glaciers

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.

During its peak in the Little Ice Age in the middle of the 19th century, the Wildstrubel Glacier extended further down the valley and was connected with the Lämmeren Glacier and also the Steghorn Glacier extended up to the Wildstrubel Glacier. The Lämmerenhütte SAC is an ideal starting point for a hiking tour up to the Wildstrubel Glacier. Wildstrubel Glacier
