Saturday 29 February
A varied circuit taking us up through forest to Aletschbord, with wonderful views of the snow-covered Aletsch glacier. We climb further to the Tyndall memorial viewpoint at 2351 m, from where we enjoy long views towards the Valais 4000-ers before heading down via the picturesque hamlet of Bäll and the St Antönien forest to our start point.
About 1000 m of up and down and 6 hours of walking.
If the up and down seem a bit much, the Belalp cablecar makes it possible to choose shorter options: (1) 800 m of up and no down, (2) 1000 m of up and 200 m of down.
Cost per person: CHF 50 (excluding transport).
