Aletsch Glacier panoramic trail
A lovely combination of the top two hiking routes in Switzerland. This independent walking tour will take you through the infamous railway embankment of the Lötschberg train line and the iconic suspension bridges of Switzerland. Astonishing views of streams and viaducts will be your companion on your way to the Great Aletsch Glacier. An immense landscape of rock and ice will create a supernatural world for you to sink in. You will feel like a fairytale character walking past glaciers and snowy peaks towards the typical mountain village Bellwald, the final stop on your tour.
