Description

The Aletsch Glacier is the longest glacier in all of Europe, and there is nothing quite like It.

Located in the Valais area of Switzerland, the Aletsch glacier is an amazing sight. And when you see it amongst a beautiful backdrop of the Swiss Alps, it is even more impressive. And for 3 days, I would like to guide you on a hiking tour around this amazing glacier.

Throughout this 3 day tour you will get to see the beautiful natural surroundings of the Aletsch glacier. You will also get to sleep in lovely and comfortable rooms in the mountains. Hence giving you a memorable experience that you will enjoy both day and night.

The trek will begin in Birgisch. From there we will hike to the Swiss village of Nessel. After that, we will head to Belalp, where we will spend the night. On the second day of the trek, we will hike to the amazing Massa bridge. This bridge will give you some exciting views of the Massa gorge below and leads to the gates of the Aletsch glacier. Afterwards, we will go to Riederfurka, where we will spend the night. On the final day of the trek, we will make our way to Blatten. During the final day’s hike, you will get to admire the gorgeous views of the Rhone valley.

Exploring the Aletsch glacier area is a fantastic opportunity. The scenery is beautiful and the experience is unforgettable. If you’re interested in joining me on this 3 day adventure, just send me a request.

Would you like to explore another glacier in the Swiss Alps? Then join me on this day long trip to the stunning Zinal glacier.

About the guide

I'm a UIMLA mountain leader, a rescuer and a journalist. Since 18 years, the mountain is my office and my full-time job. My passion is about to transmit the small and big secrets of nature but also to allow everyone to find his right balance in an environment which might appear as hostile but which is actually a large reservoir of unsuspected individual energy. Here in the mountain, the masks fall down and that's the good point of it !

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
