Ski Tour Aebniflueh

This 2-day ski tour takes you through the Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage site. From the Jungfraujoch you’ll enjoy a varied ascent through glacier landscapes to the Louitor. A descent to the Aletschfirn awards views of the mighty Aletschorn, and an overnight stay in the Hollandia Hut recharges you for your climb to Aebniflueh the next day. A long descent (2400 vertical meters) to Blatten offers the perfect finishing touch to this multiday tour.

Day 1: Ascent to Louitor 3676m

Meet your guide at Grindelwald Terminal and make your way to the Jungfraujoch. Ski down to the “Jungfrautula” and mount your skis. Climb over the glacier to the Louitor and partake in a unique view of the Aletschhorn and the Jungfrau. Descend over the Kranzbergfirn to the Aletsch Glacier before making a short counter ascent to the Hollandia Hut at 3240m.

Day 2: Ascent of the Aebniflueh 3962m

Early in the morning you will ascend towards the summit via the Aebnifluehfirn. The climb is steep, and even more so towards the top, but the panoramic summit views are more than worthwhile. During a rest on the summit, you will enjoy the surroundings of the UNESCO World Heritage site before your descent. On the way down you will make one of the longest descents in the Alps as you ski past the hut and continue over the Lang Glacier to Blatten in Lötschental. Journey home in the late afternoon.
