Stepping safety in the groundless terrain
The Aletsch Glacier is the most powerful glacier of the Alps. You are moving in a "UNESCO World Natural Heritage" area. You will hike on impressive ice streams past huge crevasses and look down on the 4000-meter giants of the Bernese Alps with their arctic ambience. With an impressive train ride through the Eigerwand above Grindelwald, you reach the highest railway station in Europe - the Jungfraujoch at over 3500 metres. On the first day you travel to the Konkordiahütte and the mighty Konkordiaplatz, where the glacier ice is still up to 900 metres thick. The new Finsteraarhorn Hut is a stopover on the Fiescher Glacier before you finally leave this vast landscape of granite and ice on the Grimsel Pass via the Oberaarjoch Hut and the Oberaar Reservoir.
Meeting point: Eiger Express Terminal at 9:00 a.m.
End: Meiringen, station approx. 16:00 Uhr
Day 1: Your mountain guide welcomes you at the ticket counter in the new terminal of the Eiger Express. In comfortable gondolas we float up to the Eigergletscher station, where we change to the train to the Eigerwand - Jungfraujoch. At the coffee bar in the Jungfraujoch there is time to sort out the equipment and have a quick look at the famous "Sphinx" complex. Then the hike begins over the Jungfraufirn (glacier stream) to the huge ice field of the Konkordiaplatz. Plenty of time to acclimatise, plenty of time to gaze at crevasses and peaks. Your mountain guide explains details about the glacier and the famous peaks. The sporty end of the day is the climb up the steep metal stairs to the Konkordiahütte. (2850 m). The sunsets from the hut terrace are breathtaking.walking time approx. 5 h.
Day 2: From the Konkordiahütte you hike eastwards to the Grünhornlücke (3286 m). Descending to the Fiescher Glacier, which is at least as impressive as the Aletsch Glacier. In the afternoon enjoy the sun terrace of the modern, loft-like Finsteraarhornhütte (3048 m). Optionally, there is the possibility to climb the easy summit of Wysnollen (3595 m). The hut is located directly at the foot of the highest peak of the Bernese Alps, the Finsteraarhorn. You will stay overnight in very modern camps with a view of the Fiescher glacier. Hiking time 4 - 5 h.
Day 3: You first descend the Fiescher glacier to the south and then later reach the Galmi and Studer glaciers. The exposed Oberaarjochhütte is located in a yoke. Your view sweeps far to the south to the Valais mountains, and on a clear day you will also spot the striking Matterhorn and the epic Weisshorn. Overnight at the Oberaarjochhütte (3256 m) directly at the foot of the Oberaarhorn, visible from afar. Hiking time 5 - 6 h.
Day 4: Before sunrise, hike through simple firn and scree fields to the top of the Oberaarhorns (3631 m) and enjoy an unforgettable sunrise from there. Fortified with a second breakfast, then descend from the hut the long Oberaar glacier down to the Oberaarsee. After the days on ice and snow, you will surely look forward to the numerous plants and herbs above the golden granite rocks at the lake. The "Rösti" from the Berghaus Oberaar should not be missed after the tour. By taxi and postbus you continue from there to the Grimsel pass and to Meiringen in the haslital. Farewell at the station in Meiringen.
