Glacier walks: experience the perpetual ice

Awe-inspiring! – surely the expression that springs to mind when you see the Great Aletsch Glacier for the first time.

A fascinating ice giant, this is the largest glacier in the Alps: 27 billion tonnes of ice over a distance of 23 km. You can discover the glacier up close on a glacier walk, an amazing and unforgettable experience. Experienced mountain guides take you safely over the ice. Adventurous spirits can even abseil down one of the immense crevasses.

Tip:
Visitors on the guided glacier walks will also find out a wealth of fascinating facts about glaciers, the ice ages and the flora and fauna of the Aletsch Arena.
