Bernese Oberland-Valais Haute Route
This original glacier trek takes you along the most beautiful spots of the Swiss Alps. On the safe rope of your guide, the journey takes you along the famous Eiger Northface, through the spectacular Jungfraujoch over the magical Aletsch glacier - the Europe's largest glacier.
We start our adventure in Interlaken. If you come by car, you can leave the car here all week. Our hotel is right next to the train station, so you can also travel comfortably by public transport. Since we are already climbing at height the first day, we recommend that you arrive at least 1 day earlier to start some acclimatization hikes at height. In good weather you can enjoy the beautiful lakes around Interlaken at the same time.
After a cozy first night in a 4-bed room in the hotel (single and double rooms for a surcharge), you will meet your guide in the morning at breakfast. Backpacks are prepared for the week and you can leave excess items at the hotel. Then we take the lift and the train to Kleine Scheidegg.
Directly below the Eiger Northface we hike up to the 'Einstieg' from the impressive Via Ferrata / Klettersteig to the Rotstock (2663m). Equipped with harness and helmet we climb up by means of ladders and paths where we can secure ourselves with a so-called via ferrata set. From the top of the Rotstock we descend via barely visible paths to Station Eigergletscher (2320m) of the Jungfraubahn and on to the Kleine Scheidegg (2061m) where we spend the night.
After a comfortable night we get on the famous Jungfraubahn towards the Jungfraujoch (3534m) where we have a close look at the Eiger Northface from the Stollenloch halfway.
After a tour through this interesting mountain station, we get on the safe rope of your UIAGM-IFMGA certified professional mountain guide over the largest glacier in Europe, the Aletsch glacier to the Konkordia platz. Through a labyrinth of ice crevasses we arrive at a long series of ladders up to the pleasant Konkordia hut. In the coming days we will find more and more our own pace, get up early and after breakfast a beautiful, exciting trek over high glaciers to the next hut. Via the Finsteraarhornhut and the Oberaarhornhut we continue to the Grimsel Pass and possibly the Rhone Glacier, the origin of the river Rhone. We return to Interlaken by bus and train.
