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.

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.
