Cross-country skiing in the Aletsch Arena

Classic, Skating or for beginners

The cross-country ski trails of the Bettmeralp and Riederalp routes blend in perfectly with the snow-covered landscape of the Aletsch Arena. Whether Classic or Skating, there’s a dream trail for everyone on the sunny Valais plateau at over 2000m above sea level. But down below in the valley too, there’s no shortage of cross-country skiing fun to be had on the Fieschertal trail. All three cross-country trails in the Aletsch Arena can be used free of charge. For experienced cross-country skiers, the nearby Goms region opens up completely new horizons. With no less than 100km of cross-country trails, the region is one of the largest cross-country skiing areas in Switzerland.
