Aletsch Adventure and Fiesch Fireworks
What a memorable day to spend Swiss National Day 2007!!!
The sun was blazing down, the sky a perfect blue and behind the longest glacier in the Alps - the Aletsch Glacier. Such amazing views we had on this sea of ice as we made a day long hike around the Eggishorn and Bettmerhorn just above our base in Fiesch
This memorable hike makes a circuit of the Eggishorn, traversing along the slope above the immense glacier, before looping back to take in Southward-looking vistas of the Monte Rosa range and the Matterhorn. Its described as relatively flat ...but there is some climbing involved and then a descent down when the legs are most tired....but the views we had in the clear weather were fabulous.
To top it off a street festival followed by a great firework display we could view from our hotel room balcony.
Also on this page the higher alpine resorts of Riederalp, Bettmeralp and Fiescheralp with their various vantage points over the Aletsch Glacier will be covered.
