Day 1: Descent to the Konkordia Hut 2850m

Meet your guide at the Jungfraujoch and then descend over the glacier to Konkordiaplatz. A series of metal stairs will lead you up to the Konkordia Hut, where you will have incredible views of the Aletsch Glacier and the surrounding mountains.

Day 2: Cross the Great Aletschfirn

You will descend the steps to return to the glacier. A long traverse of the Konkordiaplatz and an ascent along the Dreieckhorn and Aletschhorn will lead you to the Hollandia Hut at 3240m.

Day 3: The highlight! Ascent of Aebniflueh at 3962m

Early in the morning you will start towards Aebniflueh. You will gently climb over the Aebniflueh glacier and then overcome a steep section before reaching the nearly 4000 meter summit. This pristine location clearly reveals why this location is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will spend the night at the Hollandia Hut.

Day 4: Descent over the Lang Glacier into the Lötschental Valley

Today it's all downhill. The blue and snow-covered glaciers appear in all their glory, and the farther we hike, the richer the flora becomes. The tour ends in the afternoon in the Lötschen valley, in Blatten. We’ll have a quick meal and drink to round out the trip as we reflect on the experiences of the past few days.
