Aletscharena Heritage Trail

Walking jewel Wallis.

The UNESCO world cultural heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch is a unique certificate of alpine mountain scenery and was accepted in 2001 as first heritage of the Alps in the list of heritage sites. During your walking week through the Valais you explore Aletsch glacier, a really special highlight! It is the mightiest glacier in the Swiss Alps. The difference, compared to the remaining Alps is that you stand as spectator above the glacier to look onto the huge ice. Impressing is also its length, with about 23 kilometres it is the longest frozen surface in the Alps. Explore this world cultural heritage and disclose the secret of the Alps. Mountains, lush meadows, lots of ice and more than 300 days of sun per year are awaiting you in the wonderful canton Valais.

Fantastische Tour - Es passte alles
Aufgrund der umfangreichen Unterlagen und Informationen vor Ort konnte die Wanderung ohne Probleme durchgeführt werden. Die Hotels und Frühstück/Halbpension waren teils ganz hervorragend, die gewünschte veg. Kost wurde in jedem Hotel beachtet und sehr variabel gestaltet.Die auf den Wandertafeln genannten Zeiten müssen als reine Gehzeit betrachtet werden, unsere Touren dauerten ca. 1,5 bis 2 Stunden länger aufgrund der Fotostops, Rast, oder Gesprächen mit anderen Wanderern. Organisation u.a. Koffertransport war perfekt, eine unnachahmliche Freundlichkeit kam uns entgegen. Wir kommen wieder und werden verschiedene neue unbekannte Wege und Ziele erwandern.
