The Aletsch Glacier in summer

The Aletsch Glacier in the Swiss Alps is both Europe's longest and largest glacier, flowing from the southern slopes of Jungfraujoch, just beneath the world famous Eiger, over an enormous area towards the Valais.

Sweeping views of the mighty Aletsch Glacier from the summit of Eggishorn (2878m) are simply breathtaking. You'll also have the opportunity to get more up close and personal with the glacier from the village of Riederalp too.

The trip is graded as moderate-demanding with daily hikes of between10-20km, often at altitude, with overnight stops in friendly hotels. The holiday can start any day from 1 July until October and costs from £825 pp (two sharing).

The price includes 7 nights’ accommodation, most meals, main baggage transfers, route guide and maps. Walks Worldwide can book flights on request.
