The Fleschen Trail takes your breath away – and not just because it’s physically demanding. The trail is also rich in experiences: the views alone make it superb, so your efforts on this snowshoe circuit between Bellwald and Alp Fleschen are sure to be rewarded.

An abundance of sunshine, more than 400 metres of altitude difference up and down, a varied landscape and plenty of panoramic views: that’s the Fleschen Trail in a nutshell. This demanding snowshoe hike leads from Bellwald – the highest municipality in Goms – to Fleschen and back again, and has plenty to offer along the way. The ascent takes you through snowy larch forests, and though it starts off easy, the upper section of the climb is pretty tough on the leg muscles. Once you reach the top, you can treat yourself to a bite to eat on the magnificent sun terrace of the Fleschen mountain restaurant. You’ll also be able to enjoy the exceptional view of Valais’s mountain peaks, including the Mischabel chain and the Matterhorn.
