Following the Aletsch Promenade in places and passing some beautiful old Valais houses, this enjoyable winter hike affords magnificent views of the Valais mountains.
From Riederalp Mitte, head towards the east along the Aletsch Promenade to Golmenegg, where you take the winter hiking trail that branches off downhill. Passing St. Bernhard’s chapel and some beautiful old Valais houses, the route now continues east through a light forest landscape via Biel and Flesch. After a short climb you rejoin the Aletsch Promenade close to Restaurant Adler. Now follow this road in a westerly direction back to Riederalp.
The sun terrace at Restaurant Adler offers you awesome views of the Matterhorn. Enjoy a break with a fabulous panorama of distant mountains!
The altitude and the route mean that good footwear is absolutely essential for this winter hike.
Take Kantonsstrasse 19 to the Mörel-Filet exit, then follow signs for the parking facilities. Proceed on foot to the Riederalp cable car (Aletsch Bahnen AG), which takes you up to Riederalp.
