Trail on the longest Alpine Glacier




Est. Duration


Message from Michaela Scalisi

The Aletsch Glacier Hike takes us over two days across the Jungfraufirn, the Konkordiaplatz and the Great Aletsch Glacier, the longest ice stream in the Alps. Surrounded by the mighty triumvirate of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau as well as impressive ice chasms, we cross these magnificent wide glacier surfaces. An indescribable experience.

Day 1 Arrival at Grindelwald Terminal and on with the Eiger Express to the Jungfraujoch (3354m). From here we continue over the Jungfraufirn to the Konkordiahütte 2850m. 2nd day descent to the Konkordiaplatz and over the Great Aletsch Glacier to the Märjelensee, where we leave the glacier safely. Hiking trail to Kühboden and with the cable car to Fiesch.

Day 1: Ascent: 150m; descent: 750m Duration 3.5h Day 2: Ascent: 100m; descent: 740m Duration: 6h
