On rails and roads to the Aletsch Arena

OFF TO THE VALAISAN HOLIDAY PARADISE

Your journey to the holiday paradise Aletsch Arena is easy and can be done by car as well as by public transport. The destinations in the valley are all well connected for both options. If your accommodation is located on the car-free plateau, parking spaces are available in the valley and the cable car is always close to the railway station. Please note: In winter there is snow on the car-free roads on Riederalp, Bettmeralp and Fiescheralp. It is therefore advisable to book luggage transport from the mountain station to your holiday accommodation for arrival and departure. In return, you will benefit from ski-in and ski-out during your stay and can use a sledge as a means of transport. For your departure, allow enough time for the way to the top station and the ride with the cable car down to the valley.

  • To make sure you don't lose any time queuing up at the ticket counter for the journey from the valley to the car-free plateau or back, you can buy your mountain railway and ski ticket as well as your luggage trolley in advance in the web shop.

Arrival by train

All holiday resorts in the valley of the Aletsch Arena are easily accessible by public transport. The Mörel-Riederalp, Betten Talstation-Bettmeralp and Fiesch-Fiescheralp feeder lifts operate all year round and are part of the SBB's GA and Half-Fare travelcard network.

  • A savings tip for you: check the SBB app or sbb.ch in good time to see whether there are savings tickets for 1st and 2nd class.

Arrival by car

You can easily reach Mörel, Betten Talstation, Lax, Fiesch and Fieschertal by your own car. The roads and passes to Valais are all very well developed, alternatively you can use a car transport. Important to know: The Furka and Oberalp passes are closed in winter. Large car parks and multi-storey car parks are available at the valley stations of the cable cars.

Riederalp West and Ried-Mörel

From Mörel-Filet the cable car takes you to Riederalp West. Halfway up you have the possibility to get off at Ried-Mörel. You will find parking facilities in Mörel directly next to the valley station and others in the immediate vicinity. If you arrive by train, you only have to walk about 40 metres from the station to the main road and cross it to reach the valley station.

 

Riederalp Mitte and Greich

From Mörel-Filet the cable car will take you to Riederalp Mitte. The cable car stops halfway up in Greich. You will find parking facilities in Mörel directly next to the valley station and others in the immediate vicinity.

Bettmeralp and Betten Dorf

To get to Bettmeralp, take the train or car to Betten Talstation. Parking spaces are available on site. By the way, the space in the multi-storey car park costs the same as an outdoor space. The large-cabin aerial cable car will take you directly from Betten Talstation or the small cable car via Betten Dorf up to car-free Bettmeralp. The trips take only 7 or 9 minutes respectively. Important to know: Luggage transport is only permitted when travelling in the large cabin. Once you arrive at the top, it is worth taking advantage of the luggage service to your accommodation. The distance from one end of the alp to the other is around 1.3 kilometres.

 

Fiesch and Fiescheralp

You can reach the Fiescheralp with the 10-person gondola via the public transport hub in Fiesch. There are parking spaces at the public transport hub and the train arrives directly at the gondola valley station. It could hardly be more comfortable. After a 9-minute ride, you will already have reached the Fiescheralp. Up there, everything is manageable and within walking distance.

How to bring your luggage to the car-free plateau

If you spend your holidays in the Aletsch Arena on the car-free plateau, you can have two pieces of luggage per person transported free of charge from the valley. For additional suitcases, bags, etc. you can rent a luggage trolley for a fee. The trolleys are constructed in such a way that you can stack several pieces of luggage and take the trolley into the cable car. The Aletsch Railways also offer lockers and luggage storage.

 

Local taxi and luggage transport services

In the car-free holiday resorts of Riederalp and Bettmeralp, local taxi companies can be booked in advance for luggage and guest transport on arrival and departure. In winter the job is done by snowmobile, in summer by electric car. On the Fiescheralp, which is also car-free, the mountain railways organise luggage transport on request. A reservation is required.

 

  • Tip: Ask your host (hotel or holiday flat) whether they offer a luggage service.

Luggage door to door service

Another possibility for luggage transport is the luggage door to door service.
