Natural phenomenon with UNESCO award
Imposing, gigantic, simply impressive. Big words that do little when it comes to adequately describing the unique natural landscape visitors come face to face with. No wonder this UNESCO natural phenomenon – with the Great Aletsch Glacier and Aletsch forest – are so dear to all. This, the largest glacier in the Alps, is part of the UNESCO Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch World Heritage Site and long a protected site. The best views of the amazing river of ice and four-thousand-metre-high peaks of Valais are viewed from the four viewpoints. And those who thirst for more knowledge on this outstanding natural phenomenon is in just the right spot on heading for the impressive Pro Natura Aletsch centre or the Glacier World Bettmerhorn exhibition (interactive ice world).
