7-Seenwanderweg Bellwald

Up to seven mountain lakes can be discovered on this hike above Bellwald. The trail then climbs gently towards the Honeggerhorn, with a magnificent view of the Goms peaks along the "Unnera" irrigation channel.
Wirbulsee, Lengsee, Brusee, Mittelsee, Spilsee or Fleschensee: who will manage to dip their feet into the ice-cold water the longest? This approximately 4-hour, leisurely panoramic hike to the Bellwald mountain lakes is also fun for children. Time and again there are opportunities for water games. The area above Bellwald is vast, and the tour can therefore be shortened or extended as desired.

You start at the top station of the Furggulti chairlift. Before you reach the Wirbulsee lake, you will come to a turn-off in the direction of the Mittelsee lake. If you want, you can shorten the hike here. That would be a pity, of course. If you are lucky, you will meet some cuddly black-nosed sheep typical in Valais, grazing leisurely on the meadows along the slightly ascending path. It takes only a few minutes to the Lengsee. The path is relatively even, and in no time you arrive at the turnoff towards the Honeggerhorn. This is the highest point of the tour. A detour down to the Brusee is worthwhile: above the ridge, a magnificent view opens up in the direction of Obergoms. Afterwards, the rest of the tour is entirely downhill.

Passing the Mittelsee lake, you arrive at the Spilsee lake. You may want to rest on a bench here. Or perhaps you would like to go for a swim in the water? With a nice view of the Gommer Hörner mountain peaks, the last part of the hike takes hardly any effort. The mountain trail now runs in sections next to the Suone Unnera. This irrigation channel supplies the Fleschensee lake near Richinen. This is also the last lake of the hike. There is a barbecue area at the pretty blue lake and a great view from the terrace of the restaurant. You can return to Gassen on foot, by scooter or comfortably by chairlift.
