Martin's "sound of silence" walk
Silent walk - immerse yourself in the winter wonderland and experience the hike through the snow-covered Aletsch forest with all your senses. The "sound of silence" walk is without conversations, so that you can consciously perceive nature. Listen to the sounds of the crackling snow, breathe in the fresh mountain air and enjoy the fantastic view of the Aletsch Glacier and the surrounding mountains.
