Hiking holidays Aletsch Panorama Trail Wallis
The Aletsch Glacier has been a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site since 2001. 23 kilometres of ice descend here from the Jungfrau into the Valais, making the glacier one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the Alpine region. But this hiking tour is not only about the perpetual ice. You will hike over suspension bridges, visit the Aletsch Forest, which is under nature conservation, and spend the night in mountain inns in the middle of the Valaisan mountains.
Day 1: Individual arrival in Brig | Brig - Belalp
Luggage drop-off in Brig, followed by a visit to the World Nature Forum, the visitor centre for the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Naters. Afterwards hike to Blatten and by cable car up to the Belalp.

Day 2: Belalp – Riederalp
From the Aletschbord best view to the glacier gate and the lower part of the Aletsch Glacier. Over a suspension bridge to the Aletsch forest with hundred-year-old Swiss stone pines.

The 160-metre-long suspension bridge Aspi-Titter points the way to the idyllic Goms mountain village of Bellwald. Luggage claim in Brig and individual departure.
