The marked trail begins at the mountain station of the Bettmeralp cable car and climbs gently towards Hotel Waldhaus. Continue past Chalet Tosca – along the edge of the forest and parallel to the Blausee ski lift – until you reach Gopplerlücke The highest point of the snowshoe tour affords you jaw-dropping views of the snow-covered Valais Alps. Following the forest ridge, the snowshoe tour now takes you gently downhill. Via Schweibuflüe you eventually arrive at Golmenegg. Here you cross the Aletsch Promenade and follow the trail down into the valley. Passing the St. Bernhard Chapel, your hike takes you eastwards via Biel and Flesch across open ground. After a short climb through an idyllic forest, you reach the Aletschpromenade level with Restaurant Adler. Take the Aletschpromenade to return to Bettmeralp.
