A unique experience: Freedom to explore the eternal ice

The Aletsch Arena in the Swiss Canton of Valais has undertaken a major project to make the natural spectacle of the glacier accessible to wheelchair users. From the access roads and lifts to the sightseeing trails more than 2,700 metres above sea level, all the arrangements have been made to enable handicapped people to enjoy this unique experience. The resort has been awarded the 2014 Innovation Prize in recognition of its efforts.
