Who wants to glacier trek in the Swiss Alps? Then join me on this 2 day glacier trek on the Aletsch Glacier!

The Aletsch Glacier is located in the Alpine region of Jungfraujoch (3,454 meters) in Switzerland. And because the glacier is the biggest in Europe, it is also considered one of UNESCO’s Greatest Natural Wonders of the World.

We will begin this trip getting roped up to glacier trek across the Aletsch Glacier, hiking first across powdered snow and then onto ice for the glacial bit. After hiking for about 5-8 hours, we will ascend to our cozy and luxurious Alpine mountain hut for the evening, where a Swiss family who owns the place will cook us a hearty dinner. The next morning we will again set out for 5-8 hours and hike the remaining part of the glacier, before traversing beside the Maerjelen Lake and then to the train back to Interlaken.

This trip offers a discount depending on your group size, and while it is not available for children under the age of 10, it is a great activity to enjoy as a family, or with a group of friends!

Request to book this trip if you want to hike on Europe’s largest glacier!
