1 x overnight stay, half board, packed lunch, touring tea in the Konkordiahütte
With a train ride through the Eigerwand to the Jungfraujoch (3450 m) into the UNESCO World Heritage Jungfrau-Aletsch, your tour already begins spectacularly. From up there, roped up by the mountain guide, you hike over the snow-covered glacier and past the "Jungfrau" to Konkordiaplatz and the hut of the same name. On the way there are also many 4000m peaks to marvel at. Here at Konkordiaplatz all the Glescher streams flow together and join to form the actual Aletsch Glacier. The ice is still almost 900 metres thick here. It feels impressive to stand in the centre of this flow. Via a long, steep metal staircase you reach the comfortable Konkordiahütte, perched on the rocks above the glacier panorama. Enjoy the welcome aperitif and marvel even more at the impressions of the day. Overnight stay at the Konkordiahütte with breathtaking sunset.
On the second day, you walk along the crevassed glacier stream of the Great Aletsch Glacier to Lake Märjelen. Here you have solid ground under your feet again, green cotton grass meadows and picturesque ponds welcome you after all the ice and snow. Last stop and finish with a delicious Rösti and cold drinks. In the early afternoon you hike another hour to Fiescheralp. Descent by cable car to Fiesch. Onward journey/home journey by train from Fiesch.
