Walking in the Aletsch Arena

Walking paradise in the UNESCO World Heritage Site

Surely there are few places with more impressive scenery for walkers than Aletsch Arena. What's more, the region is part of the UNESCO Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch World Heritage Site  for its very special landscape.

Walkers can enjoy the unique and magnificent mountain landscape wherever they go: on a walk along the Great Aletsch Glacier, on a loop of the four View Points looking out over the largest glacier in the Alps and the 4000-metre Valais Alps, or on a ramble through the Aletsch Forest admiring Swiss pines that are as much as 1000 years old.


300 km

of prepared and secured hiking trails are waiting to be discovered by you.

1000 years

old are the oldest Swiss stone pines in the Aletsch forest.

5 suspension bridges

can be found in the Aletsch Goms region. These promise adventures on airy paths - hiking with thrills and increased adrenalin.
