Climbing in the Aletsch Arena

Climbing paradise for families and adventurers

Planning the next holds and steps at lofty heights: climbing is an adrenalin-filled adventure. In the Aletsch Arena, all climbing enthusiasts get their money's worth - whether they are complete beginners, experienced climbers or an adventurous family. Because climbing in the Aletsch Arena is not only possible in rope parks, but also along fixed rope routes or in climbing gardens. And, of course, always in top safety.


Rope park

Climbing fun for the whole family

High up in the treetops of the Baschweri Rope Park on Bettmeralp and the Swiss Rope Park Fiesch, family fun is guaranteed on a total of 13 courses. Mastering the obstacles in the trees requires skill - and a little courage here and there. Helmet and gloves are available on site. The Seilpark Baschweri, situated on the forest path in the direction of Fiescheralp, can be easily reached on foot in about 15 minutes from the Bettmeralp top station. The Swiss Seilpark Fiesch is located on the premises of the Sport Resort in Fiesch. You can register at the reception. Have fun with your climbing adventure.


  • Also suitable for wheelchair users

    Did you know? At the Swiss Seilpark Fiesch a course has been prepared in such a way that you can also complete it as a wheelchair user.

Via ferrata

Climbing fun for the whole family

On one side the abyss, on the other side the rock face: Shimmying along a via ferrata is a lot of fun, but also a lot of thrills. In the Aletsch Arena, the Aletsch (difficulty levels K3-K4) and Eggishorn (K2-K3) via ferrata routes await adventurers who are free from giddiness or those who want to push their personal comfort zone and get to know a new sport. The Eggishorn via ferrata is located on the Eggishorn. You will find the signposted entry point when you walk in the direction of the Höhenweg/Bettmerhorn. Tip: combine your climbing adventure with an excursion to the nearby View Point. From there you have a view over the entire 23 kilometres of the Great Aletsch Glacier, parts of the smaller Fiescher Glacier and you can see the Matterhorn and other 4000m peaks. The Aletsch via ferrata takes you once around the Gibidum reservoir. This is located on the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage Site in Blatten-Belalp, a partner destination of the Aletsch Arena.


  • Tip: combine your journey with a beautiful hike.

Climbing Garden

For practised and practicing

If you want to take on a challenge in nature in the Aletsch Arena, the Bettmeralp Adler and Fieschertal climbing gardens are the right place for you. The different routes in the natural rocks have different degrees of difficulty. So they are also ideal for climbing beginners. One thing remains the same for everyone: conquering the wall is a first-class thrill. The Adler Climbing Garden is located behind the Adler Restaurant between Bettmeralp and Riederalp and can be reached on foot in 20 minutes from the Bettmeralp top station. There are 18 newly renovated routes available. The climbing wall in Fieschertal can be found around the castle hut. The red granite slabs cut by the glacier are a very popular climbing eldorado in the pre-alpine terrain.
