Top trails next to the biggest glacier of the Alps
The Aletsch glacier with over 20 km length is the biggest of the Alps. It has its origin high up at famous peaks like the Mönch and Jungfrau. Further down where the ice is already on its way for hundred years, you can ride on the alpine trails of the Bettmergrat with a stunning view on the lazy white snake.
Between Brig and Fiesch you can use the train and lifts with one ticket that opens up a wide area with many descents. When you enter the woods below the Bettmergrat, you still have steep 1200vm down to the valley. The trails are challenging and more on the technical side. Best time of the year is July to September.
