Wildhorn

The Wildhorn is not as wild as the name sounds. But the view of the Bernese Mittelland is really "wild". On the watershed between Bern and Valais, it would be a shame not to descend over the white limestone karst fields into Valais. And once in the Valais, the fine white wine is not far away.

Day 1: Ascent to the Wildhorn hut 2303m

Meeting point is the Iffigenalp, from there the only way to get on is by foot... We comfortably hike along the Iffig valley to the Iffig lake. In warm weather, the cooling lures... Left and right, with the manifesto of mountains, we enjoy the peace away from the hustle and bustle over a hearty lunch break. We then soon reach the cozy Wildhornhütte and end the day with a delicious dinner and may finish it over a nice glass of wine.

Day 2: Summit Alpine Tour to the Wildhorn 3247m

Early morning departure: After a hearty mountain breakfast we hike up to the distinctive rock edge of "Chilchlis”. We cross the Tungel glacier to the Glacier de Ténéhet and we are moving already on Valais soil, hence the French name of the glacier. The slightly steeper summit slope guides us to our destination. The view is breathtaking: to the south are the ‘four-thousands’ summits of the Valais and in the north, we have an enjoyable view to the plains and the Jura. The descent on the south side, along karst fields we are climbing towards the blue Lac de Tseuzier. From here a taxi will take us to the station of Sion. Journey goes back home later in the afternoon.
