Hello, Is there a way to reach the Aletsch Glacier in early May?

It doesn't appear that the cable car from Fiesch to Eggishorn is working. Are there other ways to see the glacier and from where should I start?

Thank you for your help!

Hi suzijohnson,

Regular service starts June 9 however it looks like they've started service already once per day (as of April 15). You can find details and timetables on their website here: https://www.aletschare na.ch/life/shows-events/events-calendar/event/?event=excursions-to-the-viewpoints-eggishorn-and-hohfluh&date_from=2018 -04-19

And an overview of the trip on our website here. And Bettmerhorn here.

I'm looking at going in late May, but I was going to go from Betten and Bettmeralp. Not sure if this is a good idea or an available option for you maybe? In saying this, it's my first trip there. Enjoy!!

Hello Lucas, this is wonderful news. So maybe i can go from Fiesch. I looked last night but couldn't find that. I found a different time table that said they were not running. thank you so much for your help!
