Riederalp - Riederfurka - Riederhorn - Riederalp

We climb past the Alpine Museum to Riederfurka (2,065 metres). Then we hike on the flat, southern Casselweg in a wide arc first around and then up to the Riederhorn (2,230 metres). If we are lucky, we might meet chamois. They are used to hikers and like to watch people from a short distance. The Riederhorn forms the end of the Eggishorn - Bettmerhorn - Moosfluh - Hohfluh ridge and offers a clear view of the Rhone valley and the highest mountains and the large glaciers of the Valais and Bernese Alps. We follow the same route back again. On Riederfurka, a stopover is possible.
