Welcome to Aletsch Glacier


The best views are from Eggishorn (2927m), Bettmerhorn (2647m) and Moosfluh (2333m) at the top of cable cars and lifts climbing from Fiesch, Bettmeralp and Riederalp in Valais.

Depending where you are viewing from, if the weather is good, you may see the jewels of the Bernese Oberland, the Eiger, Mönch and the Jungfrau more or less directly to the north, at the head of the glacier.
