Belalp winter hikes

Winter hikes at the foot of the Aletsch Glacier

Leisurely winter hike at the foot of the Aletsch glacier

Winter Hiking with Snowshoes

Take the Postbus from Brig to Blatten bei Naters and ride the cable car up to Belalp. From there, continue on foot to Aletschbord and the historic Hotel Belalp and on to the Tyndall memorial to enjoy the fantastic views of the Great Aletsch Glacier and a breathtaking panorama. From here you hike back to the Belalp mountain station, or can take the more difficult path with a somewhat challenging climb up to Hohbiel. From Hohbiel a chairlift brings you back to Belalp, the cable car or the gondola delivers you safely back to Blatten and a Postbus takes you back to Brig. As an alternative, you can close the loop by hiking back to the Tyndall monument and then across the snow-covered Lüsgersee to the cable car mountain station at Belalp. Take the cable car down to the valley and return to Brig by postbus.
