Enduro Tour to Lake Märjelen

  • start: Riederalp Mitte, mountain railway station
  • destination: Riederalp Mitte, mountain railway station

Starting from Riederalp Mitte mountain railway station, you cycle along the Aletsch Promenade to Bettmeralp. The tour is relatively flat here, but this soon changes. The very next section from Bettmeralp to Wurzenbord is challenging, so you might prefer to take the Wurzenbord chairlift to the top. The route continues pretty much on the level to Fiescheralp, then climbs to the Tälligrat Tunnel (Obers Tälli). Don’t forget to take in the view of the Fiesch Glacier from here! After passing through the tunnel, you reach Lake Märjelensee. Tip: Walk down to the edge of the glacier and admire the Great Aletsch Glacier. You can take a break in the Gletscherstube and replenish your energy levels for the return route. For this, you head first in the direction of Märjelenwang, then via Unners Tälli back to Fiescheralp and on to Bettmeralp. Before reaching the village, turn right to the idyllic Lake Bettmersee. The last stage brings you via Gopplerlücke and Golmenegg back to Riederalp Mitte mountain station.
