Glacier Hike at the Jungfraujoch

Meet your guide at the coffee bar at the Jungfraujoch and take a tour of the various attractions, including the Ice Palace, Alpine Sensation, and the Plateau. Exit to the Aletsch Glacier and take in views of nearly every 4000m summit in the Bernese Alps. Hike for an hour to the Mönchsjoch hut and then continue across the Ewig Schneefeld (“eternal snowfield”). Another hour of hiking will lead you to the Mönchsjoch, where you will have incredible views of the Eiger, Schreckhorn, and the Eismeer Glacier. You will take a short break, have a snack, and then hike back to the Mönchsjoch hut. Enjoy a delicious piece of cake at the hut before returning to the Jungfraujoch and beginning your journey home.
