Aletschgletscher, Matterhorn
Tour war großartig, körperlich durchaus herausfordernd für den wenig Bergerfahrenen. Höhepunkt eindeutig als Abschluss die Übernachtung im Hotel Belalp. Bei der Organisation könnte man sich etwas mehr Fürsorge wünschen, auch im Hinblick auf die Kosten (Rückfahrt von Belalp bis Täsch etc..) Empfehlenswert!
