Autumn hikes at the sunny sea of ice

The bright colours of nature and the clear mountain air make autumn a popular season for hiking. The Aletsch Arena is an experience for all the senses!

In the mountains, the “golden season” is virtually unsurpassed in its beauty. The mood in the Aletsch Arena on a sunny autumn day is indescribable – enjoy the unique natural scenery at the Great Aletsch Glacier. The rhododendrons produce a final burst of red; the nearby Valais and Bernese Alps show their sharpest contours, with the 23km-long Aletsch Glacier following suit; and the almost thousand-year-old pines in the gold-coloured Aletsch Forest drop their aromatic cones.
