Winterwanderweg Fiesch–Fieschertal

Winterwanderweg Fiesch–Fieschertal

This hike is perfect for fans of winter forest hikes. The view of Fiesch can be enjoyed at every stage of the walk. From the Aletsch Zoo, the two-hour winter hike leads through the alder forest on a slight hill parallel to the Wysswasser glacier creek to Fieschertal.
The path’s starting point is the Aletsch Animal Park, close to the lower station of the Fiesch-Eggishorn cable car. In this park, animal lovers of all ages can watch both domesticated and wild animals in their natural habitat.

The start of this two-hour winter walk is a short, easy climb leading to a wooded part of the valley, in the direction of the Fieschertal valley. The slightly elevated path runs parallel to the Wysswasser glacial stream, which is fed by the Fiescher Glacier. The walk along the «Bregeraweg» path, which passes through a forest of snow-covered alders, offers a series of breathtaking views of Fiesch.

The last section of the path is on open ground: passing through Hämischbode and the hamlet of Wichel, you will arrive in the Fieschertal valley. Any hikers who do not want to go back by foot can take the shuttle bus or postal bus to return to Fiesch.
