Car-free, family-friendly and full of surprises
Picturesque Valais chalets, helpful residents, a vibrant village centre with shops, bars and local grocery stores: anyone who sets foot on car-free Bettmeralp for the first time is immediately blown away by the charm of this picturesque village at 1970 metres above sea level.
This part of the Aletsch Arena is extremely popular for family holidays in Switzerland. Hardly surprising, really: in winter, the sweeping mountain landscape is ideal for skiing or sledging and much more. In summer, the diverse terrain and breathtaking views attract numerous hikers, bikers and trail-runners.
Besides Bettmeralp, the Aletsch Arena also includes Riederalp, Mörel-Filet, Lax, Fiesch, Fieschertal and Fiescheralp.
